          I know it’s jarred, but tortellini with prego (has to be prego, husband and I have tried a million different kinds- only prego works) creamy vodka sauce is legendary.

                                      FUN FACT: This tastes amazing with a cream sauce and bacon. You can use bacon bits or whole chunks of bacon. Whichever you like, it doesn't really matter. That is if you don't care that the whole world thinks you're a pretty little girl, but if you do care about that sort of thing, then I highly recommend chunks!
