Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 (10-ounce) bag frozen broccoli
    1 (16-ounce) package cheese tortellini
    1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    1 teaspoon Italian herbs
    1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1/4 cup shredded Italian-blend cheese

Tips

You can swap roasted red peppers for the sun-dried tomatoes, if you prefer.
Use scissors to snip the sun-dried tomatoes into bite-size pieces.


Directions

Prepare the broccoli according to package directions.
Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
Place the broth in a microwave-safe container. Heat until nearly boiling, about three minutes. Add the herbs and sun-dried tomatoes and allow them to steep.
Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente, about five minutes.
Drain the pasta and immediately return to the pot. Add the broccoli, broth, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, and butter. Toss to combine.
Divide among four bowls and top each portion with one tablespoon cheese.
Serving Size: Serves 4 (about two cups)

    This was a super-quick and very tasty meal! I used a frozen, unseasoned broccoli & cauliflower mix instead of the Tuscan seasoned and added my own Italian seasoning. I also used Soy-Free Earth Balance instead of butter and vegetable stock instead of chicken. The hubs loved it. Will make again. - 2/4/13

    I cooked onions and garlic with 1 tsp olive oil, added low sodium veg broth (130mgs for 32 oz) and broccoli flowerets when tender, added Tortelini and fresh tomatoes and sodium free butter. It was awesome. - 2/10/13

    I made this with fresh spinach instead of broccoli. Drained the tortellini over the spinach to wilt it, then tossed with the rest of the ingredients. May add some minced garlic next time. Would also be good with crumbled turkey Italian sausage. Very easy and delicious! - 9/18/13

    Didn't have the seasoned broccoli, just broccoli florets, so used and seasoned them with Italian seasoning . Used roasted mini peppers, it was very good. - 2/10/13

  • Delicious! I substituted roasted red peppers for sundried tomatoes because that's what I had on hand. Also used fresh broccoli, vegetable broth and Earth Balance. The only other change I might make would be to top it off with fresh basil. I have a feeling I'll be making this recipe a lot! - 4/8/14

  • I made this with Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta because I don't like chunks of tomato and it still turned out really well. I added chicken breasts and a 1/4 cup of pasta sauce and I am very pleased with this meal, as was my husband. :) - 4/21/13
