After doing an Internet search, I was not able to find a recipe which comes close to how I have prepared this dish several times. It is quite tasty and has gone through some variations in the past years. I have finally settled on this method which produces a very delicious quick and easy dinner.
I use microwave bacon to start, which immediately speeds up the cooking process. In a large 10 inch deep saucepan, I heat 5 strips of bacon with just a teaspoon of olive oil. Remove the bacon and set aside to cut into pieces. In the pan, brown one white chopped onion.
Next, add 1/2 of one frozen box of spinach, which has been thawed and drained. And, also 1/2 bag of frozen tortellini, which have been thawed, but not yet cooked. Stir to combine and heat slightly. Then add, one canned of drained diced tomatoes.
Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Then add bacon pieces and cook and additional five minutes.
Top with Parmesan cheese and parsley flakes. Serve and enjoy.
