Interesting.... from here in Oregon...
If you're among the more than 25 million Americans that purchased a real Christmas tree, there's a decent chance your tree came from Oregon. Oregon was the top Christmas tree–producing state, with more than 6.4 million trees produced. North Carolina was the second-largest producer of Christmas trees, followed by Michigan and Pennsylvania. The three best-selling species of Christmas trees include the Fraser fir, Noble fir, and Douglas fir. An estimated 60 million to 70 million Christmas tree seedlings are planted yearly.
Here is the largest Christmas Tree farm in the world...
One-Pot Tortellini Alfredo
1 12oz pkg refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1 cup heavy whipping cream
5 T. unsalted butter
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups diced deli rotisserie chicken

Cook the tortellini as directed on the package, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water when draining. Set cooked pasta aside.
Add 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 5 T unsalted butter to the empty saucepan over medium-high heat, simmer 3-5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Stir in 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese until melted. Mix in the cooked tortellini, 2 cups of the diced chicken, and about 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water. Add more if needed to adjust the consistency of the sauce.
