    Super easy to make I like to use this dish as an entree. The cheese filled tortellini is stir fried with bacon and onion then served with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

    One word, awesome! I added some red bell pepper, some basil, and topped with sharp provolone cheese instead of the parmasean. There were no leftovers even though it was just me and my husband - - - it was that good!  -  02 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    It was good, but not amazing. Pancetta Bacon: It will be very difficult for most people to find at the local grocery store. It is a fancy style of bacon that is made from the same cuts as standard bacon but is generally more expensive and curred over a longer period of time using salt. Regular bacon will suffice. This recipe was interesting and had good flavor but lacked the kick I usually look for. I DO recommend everyone trying this at least once. This will not be a part of my regular rotation.  -  05 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    My husband and I LOVED THIS. I'm a very inexperienced cook, and my new year's resolution was to cook a lot more. This couldn't have been easier, and the taste seems sophisticated, to my inexperienced palate. I would even serve this to my mother in law, if she weren't a heartless hag!  -  02 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
