- 1 (9 ounce) packagerefrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, then cut into 1/4 inch slices
- 1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped yellow bell pepper
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil oregano and garlic, undrained
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, rised and drained
- 2 tablespoons chili sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Cook and drain tortellini as directed on package.
- While tortellini is cooking, heat oil in 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook zucchini and bell pepper in oil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender.
- Stir in tomatoes, beans, chili sauce and salt. Cook 4 to 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Stir in tortellini. Sprinkle with parsley.
Super easy and filling, and a great way to get a lot of veggies. I left out the chili sauce and salt, as I was also feeding this to my 1-year-old. I did add a garlic clove while sauteeing the zucchini. The whole family enjoyed it! DH & I paired with a quick caesar salad and parmesan breadsticks from the supermarket bakery.
Had everything on hand for this recipe & made the soup in no time at all! I particularly enjoy using the cheese tortillini in a variety of recipes, & this one makes for a GREAT TASTING SOUP ~ Definitely a keeper of a recipe! The only change I made was to add a minced clove of garlic! Thanks, much, for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
