Butter Chicken Pasta

I had nothing in the fridge except cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce, half a jar of butter chicken, and some left over tortellini. So I was like, awww hell…let’s see how this will turn out. It turned out delicious! AND it took me approx. 5 min to make since I already had boiled pasta in the…
