Kind of random, but last Sunday I was deciding what to make the boys and husband for dinner and just when I was going to make a pot of chili, I saw a package of tortellini in my pantry. I thought, I do chili mac all the time so why not add tortellini to my chili?! The rest is history and we loved this speedy to make dinner.
