Ingredients

  • 1 pound cheese or meat tortellini
  • 4 ounces sliced bacon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups arugula (about 1 bunch)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

  1. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions.

    Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 7 to 8 minutes. Reserve the bacon and discard the drippings.

    Wipe out skillet and return to medium heat. Add the butter and melt, swirling or stirring with a wooden spoon as it starts to foam and sputter. Remove the butter from the heat as soon as it begins to turn golden brown and smells nutty, about 1 minute.

    Break the bacon into small pieces and add to skillet with the arugula, salt, pepper, and cooked tortellini. Toss well and divide among individual bowls.

    Tip: If you can't find arugula, try this dish with spinach, basil, or watercress.
