Grilled Chicken Tortellini

 I love a good homemade pasta dish. And I especially love a homemade pasta dish that’s easy to make and light!
This Grilled Chicken Tortellini doesn’t have any sauce. (Say whaaa?) But it’s not a dry pasta dish so don’t you worry your little head. The oil from the sundried tomatoes jar gives the pasta a nice smooth texture without making it heavy. No dry pasta here! Add some Italian blend cheese and fresh basil for a finishing touch. This is a great way to enjoy pasta without a lot of extra calories!
