Tortellini with Sundried Tomatoes and Bacon

Serves 4-6

2 packages of fresh cheese tortellini
1 tbsp olive oil
4 bacon, chopped
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes (in oil), chopped
½ cup half and half cream
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup water
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped

Cook tortellini according to package instructions, drain and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the oil and add the bacon. Cook and stir until the bacon bits are nice and crisp. Add the onions and sun-dried tomatoes and cook for a few minutes, until the onion is tender. Remove half of the bacon mixture and set aside.

Pour the cream, sour cream, water, Parmesan cheese and basil into the skillet with the remaining bacon mixture and cook until hot. Add the cooked tortillas and combine well.

Sprinkle with the bacon mixture that was set aside and serve immediately.
