Creamy Veggie Tortellini

Tortellini is one of my favorite types of pasta. I like to use the spinach and cheese stuffed tortellini for a little extra serving of vegetables but it is hidden enough that my toddler won’t complain. This dish is quick and easy and feel free to use any vegetables you have on hand. The most important flavors come from the fire roasted tomatoes, whipping cream, and parmesan cheese to create that delicious creamy sauce.

  • 12 oz tortellini
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 lb chicken breast
