Olive Garden Tortellini al Forno

1 pkg. tortellini (9 oz.) , prepared according to package directions
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 pieces of crispy cooked bacon
1 tablespoon sliced scallions

In a small saucepan combine butter and heavy cream over medium heat. When the cream and butter begin to bubble slightly add Parmesan cheese. Stir in Parmesan cheese, and whisk in cheese until it melts completely.

Place 8 to 10 pieces of tortellini in each dish for a serving. Pour cheese over tortellini and add crumbled bacon and sliced scallions over the tortellini.

This sounds good, but why is it called al forno?

Baked makes sense to be called al forno.

You are correct it should be baked. I did not know al forno meant baked but I assumed this was OK because the recipes from the site I got this one from are usually good copycats. Perhaps the ingredients are correct but the instructions are missing the baking step. I have sent a message to the poster asking why it is not baked.

Here is the response:

I don’t know why they named the dish they way they did. I only try to duplicate their recipes. They have a unique idea about scampi too.

Can you tell me who is they? I suspect you cannot so if not I understand.

They = the Olive Garden Restaurant.
