Easy, beautiful, and really really yummy. I used beef/pork tortellini and added granulated garlic to Italian style breadcrumbs. Although I doubled the recipe, I did not double the amount of water.

Great recipe! I like that it is one-pan easy AND delicious! I loved the olive oil and breadcrumb topping but you have to watch it - it gets brown quickly! I used frozen broccoli because it's what I had on hand but I'd like to try it with fresh. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe!

Yum! This is so simple and so good. I used fresh broccoli only because I didn't have any frozen on hand. The breadcrumb topping really adds a very nice crunch to this great casserole. Thanks Calamity Jane for a recipe that I will repeat often. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
