    1      lb            frozen cheese-filled tortellini
      1/2  tbsp          butter
    1      tbsp          olive oil
    1      lb            boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    1                    roasted red bell pepper -- cut into thin strips
                         salt and coarsely ground black pepper -- to taste
 
    4      thin slices   smoked chicken or turkey -- cut in thin strips
      1/2  tsp           dried sage
    1 1/2  tsp           grated lemon rind
    2      tbsp          lemon juice
    2      tbsp          chopped parsley
 
 Cook tortellini in boiling water according to instructions on package.
 
 Meanwhile melt butter and olive oil in large frying pan over medium high
 heat.  Add chicken breast, salt and pepper, and stir fry for about 3
 minutes.  Add red pepper strips, turn heat down to medium, and cook until
 
 chicken and pepper is done, stirring periodically.
 
 Add smoked turkey or chicken strips and fresh sage*, and stir fry until
 heated through. Add tortellini, lemon rind, lemon juice, and parsley.  Ad
 d
 more salt and pepper if needed.  Stir for a minute or two to heat and mix

 Serves about 6.
 
 *If you use dried sage, add it earlier in the process, with the chicken.
 
 The original recipe said to roast and peel the red pepper, which I think
 is too much work.  You can buy canned roasted peppers which work
 wonderfully.  If you use them, add them later, with the smoked turkey,
 since they're already cooked.  I like them, but I also like plain red bel
 l
 pepper.
