7.  Balsamic Tortellini



1-2 TBS olive oil

2/3 cup freeze dried onion

1/3 cup water

1 (2.8 oz) jar Hormel Real Bacon Pieces

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

2 (7 oz.) boxes Cheese-filled Tortellini

2-4 TBS Balsamic Vinegar (to taste)*


Rehydrate onions with water.  Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 minutes or until al dente.  Drain pasta and add olive oil, onions and bacon. Reserve 2 TBS parmesan cheese (set aside) and add remaining cheese to pasta. Add vinegar, toss all together, and serve (sprinkling reserved parmesan on top).

(*Note:  Make yourself a note to grab the olive oil and balsamic vinegar on your way out if planning this for a 72 hour kit.)
