Creamy Chicken, Tomato & Spinach Tortellini

Greg and I are delighted to be able to serve our customers and community with premium local meat we couldn't help but think - wouldn't it be nice to summer in the Italian countryside?  

Don't worry we aren't planning a vacation any time soon, but that doesn't mean we can't have a little Italy here at home! We are excited to share a NEW recipe we thought you would ALL want in your weekly dinner rotation any time of the year. It is ITALIAN, DELICIOUS & EASY - just 30 minutes! For the recipe you can use any left over chicken or BBQ up some chicken breasts like we did! We will admit we are a little heavy handed on the garlic and spinach! 

Bon Appétit! Or should we say - Buon Appetito!
