Warm Chicken Tortellini Au Gratin

This is one of my favorite recipes. Pasta from Monday plus roasted chicken from Tuesday equals this delicious dish on Wednesday. It's fast and delicious, and paired with a green salad and toasty bread, you have a meal that's fancy enough for company. —Brenda Cole, Reisterstown, Maryland

    This was very dry and pretty bland, despite the ingredients. Agree with another review that the amount of artichokes was overpowering. Very disappointed. I wanted to love it, but did not. It had promise. Maybe instead of mayo, use a cream cheese and cream of chicken combo to get it more creamy.

    I thought this recipe was very good. I only used 1 jar of artichokes and added some minced garlic. The dish was very creamy. I also used 2 cans of canned chicken breast because I had it. I will definitely make it again.

    I am so sorry but this is one of the most disgusting, meals, that even I, a lover of pasta, cheese, chicken and artichokes...could not eat....ohhhh I tried cuz of all the work I put into it.......let me suggest that TWO 14 oz. cans of artichokes is way, way too overpowered the dish.....the dish wasn't creamy at all, quite dry.....have subscribed to your magazine for some time, got so many delicious recipes, but this one I printed it going right into the garbage disposal...

    I am eating this as I write. What a flavorful dish and so easy to make. I really like that it only has five ingredients. I did make a slight modification. I used Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise (I don't care for may) but I didn't have enough on hand. A quick google search said a good substitute for mayo is Greek yogurt. Well, all I have on hand is vanilla flavor but since I only needed 1/2 cup and it is a bit tart, I decided to go for it. And, the only refrigerated tortellini I could find was spinach and Romano cheese. This has a wonderful tangy flavor from the artichokes that combines nicely with the soft flavor of the tortellini to make a very tasty dish. I didn't even have to add salt because there is enough flavor that it's not needed. This will become one of my go to dishes for sure.
