Do it Yourself: Chicken & Pesto Tortellini Recipe

Only a couple weeks ago, we shared our tasty Eggs Benedict and Blender Hollandaise recipes for you to make at home. This time around, we decided to dive into a main dish; specifically our Chicken & Pesto Tortellini found at Garden Commons.

Like the Eggs Benedict and Hollandaise recipes, this recipe was featured during our Alumni Weekend Progressive Lunch, where guests were given a demonstration, courtesy of our culinary experts, on how to make this tasty dish. They were then able to take the recipe, among others, home with them to add to their own personal cookbook.

Whether you’re an experienced cook or learning to dabble in the kitchen, this is one simple recipe you can pick-up quickly and share with others!


Our alumni learned about a variety of recipes, including this Chicken & Pesto Tortellini.

So, pull out the apron and hit the kitchen! After you’re done, share a photo with us on TwitterInstagram and/or Facebook!
