tortellini in a basil pesto creamy sauce.

The delicious three-cheese tortellini in a creamy pesto sauce that we sampled at the Buffet at Bellagio left a lingering taste in both our mouths. So for dinner last night, we tried to recreate it with a few ingredients that we picked up on the way back from the grocery store. 

Follow the simple steps for a quick journey to a gourmet meal. Melt butter in a pan. Fry garlic, diced red onion, mushrooms and cubed bacon till cooked. I used several dollops of prepared basil pesto but you can always make your own. Mix in heavy cream till the sauce takes on green, creamy texture. Stir in cooked, drained tortellini. I know it looks weird but tastes out of this world. Even I, a non-lover-of-pasta, loved it. It wasn't quite the same as the one we had at the Bellagio which had a lot more sauce but it was still pretty damn good, nonetheless.
