Well fab fans & followers, I have it for you. A tasty, easy, no bake tortellini recipe that’s sure to satisfy!
We have a delectable tortellini recipe already in the Archive but I saw this one & decided that it definitely deserved a shot. No sauce, no bake, and more veggies. Sounds pretty good to me!
So here it is for you, courtesy of BettyCrocker.com. Oh….and did I mention…..
It’s a One Pot!!! Woooooo!
Tortellini with Fresh Veggies
1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup) (I used a 1/2 red pepper and 1/2 yellow pepper)
2 cups chopped roma (plum) tomatoes (6 to 8 medium)
1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, then cut crosswise into slices (1 1/2 cups) (I used 2 small-medium zucchinis)
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 Cook and drain tortellini as directed on package, using 3-quart saucepan. Wipe out saucepan with paper towel.
2 Heat oil in same saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook bell pepper in oil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender.
3 Stir in tomatoes, zucchini, Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender.
4 Stir in tortellini. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Once dished, sprinkle with fresh Parmesan and serve.
Dominic and I really enjoyed this one! As usual, Justice wouldn’t eat it. Dinner-less again! C’est la vie. She gets to make the choice…the crazy girl.
This recipe will definitely get a repeat or two down the road. While I like the other tortellini recipe (with the sauce), this one is lighter. Not to mention, of course, faster. And that is ALWAYS a bonus in my book!
I hope you try this one at your house soon. It’s a great easy healthy dinner!
