    Today Is National Tortellini Day! Try this cheesy Baked Bacon Tortellini!! Ingredients: -12 slices bacon (recipe calls for 4 slices, but you know we need more!) -1 small white onion, diced medium -1 garlic clove, minced -coarse salt and ground pepper -1 tbsp flour -2 cups whole milk (I used 1 cup half n half and 1 cup 1% milk) -2 packages cheese tortellini (8.8 ounces each) -1/2 cup grated Parmesan -1/2 cup grated mozzarella (my own addition) What to Do: 1. Heat broiler with rack in top position. In a medium saucepan, cook bacon until browned and crisp (about 10 minutes) transfer to a paper towel to drain. Add onion and garlic to the saucepan with bacon grease and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until onion is soft, about 8 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. 2. Slowly add milk, whisking constantly. Add tortellini and bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring occasionally. Reduce to a simmer; cook, stirring often, until liquid has thickened (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup of Parmesan and transfer to a 2 quart broiler proof dish. Top with crumbled bacon, remaining Parm and mozzarella. Broil until top is golden brown, 3-5 minutes.
