For a foolproof 20 minute supper with less than 7 ingredients, toss packaged cheese tortellini with roast chicken, herbs, brocolli and/or cauliflower and dried tomato pesto. Top with Parmesan cheese. If your kiddos won't touch anything with veggies mixed in, this recipe is equally as good if you steam the brocolli/cauliflower as a side. Easy-peasy.

~Chicken Tortellini Toss~
Serves: 4
Start to finish: 20 minutes

2 - 9 oz. pkgs. refrigerated cheese tortellini
4 cups broccoli and/or cauliflower florets
1 - 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs
1/2 of a 10-ounce jar dried tomato pesto (1/2 cup)
1 9-oz. pkg. frozen roasted or grilled chicken breast strips, thawed
Shaved Parmesan (optional)

On the stovetop, cook tortellini according to package directions.
Add the broccoli the last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain and return to pot.
Stir in undrained tomatoes, tomato pesto, and chicken.
Cook, stirring occasionally, just until heated through.
Garnish with Parmesan cheese.
