Spinach Bacon Tortellini Bake

After Thanksgiving, I was not up for cooking much for awhile. But I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to try it.
My Dr. Suess Apron means I'm ready to throw it down!
So I pulled out my Dr. Suess apron and got to work!

First I pressed the spinach into the bottom of a 9x9 pan.

I then cooked the tortellini according to the package.
Tortellini is my true love. 
Using the oven method explained here, I cooked bacon.

I put the tortellini in a bowl and mixed in alfraedo sauce.

I chopped the bacon into smaller pieces and added that to the mix.
It's getting there!
The mixture was then messily piled into the pan.

I topped it with some more bacon, parmesan cheese and parsley.
Oh baby!
After cooking, here is the final product.
Sweet baby Jesus that's good!
This was pretty easy and so yummy! Bacon, cheese and noodles just belong together!
My only complaint was the layer of canned spinach on the bottom. It was pretty gross, and I LOVE spinach. Next time I might add fresh spinach and stir it into the mix. But otherwise, this dish was delicious, filling, and fulfilled my cheesy-bacon-ey fantasies.

Hope you enjoy trying this dish as well!

Love and Blessings,
