So gooood. I got this recipe from a Hannaford recipe card. I usually double the cheese, because we really like cheese, haha.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 10 ounces chicken breasts, cooked, cut into pieces
- 16 ounces cheese tortellini
- 1 lb broccoli floret
- 2⁄3 cup Italian cheese, shredded
- Fill a pot with water and place over high heat. Bring to a roiling boil.
- In a microwave-safe dish, combine oil, garlic, chicken broth, and lemon juice. Add chicken and microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
- When water boils, add tortellini to pot and stir. When water returns to a gentle boil, add broccoli and stir. Stir occasionally until tortellini is done, approximately 8-11 minutes Drain tortellini and broccoli in a colander. Do not rinse.
- Add sauce and chicken to pot. Add tortellini and 1/3 cup shredded cheese. Toss well to coat tortellini and broccoli and sauce.
- To serve, divide pasta and sauce between 4 bowls. Garnish with remaining cheese. If desired, season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.
Everyone I have fed this too has gone absolutely CRAZY over it. I'm making it tonight for the 5th time in a month =)
