Expert Tips

  • Sliced green onions can be substituted for the fresh chives.
  • Small cherry tomatoes can be left whole instead of cut in half. Or use small whole grape tomatoes.
  • Here are three easy ways to reduce the fat in this recipe. Look for refrigerated reduced-fat cheese-filled tortellini. Use low-fat turkey bacon instead of regular bacon, or just cut the amount of bacon in half (about 6 or 7 slices). And decrease the sunflower nuts to 2 tablespoons or omit them.
