Notes

  • Want to just make one serving? Click on the number of servings in the recipe card and move the slider to 1 and use the ingredient amounts in the recipe card
  • Use fresh or frozen vegetables that you have on hand. Zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, & tomatoes are a few ideas. If using frozen vegetables, cook them a bit longer to evaporate the extra water in them.
  • Pour some of the marinated artichoke liquid into the tortellini to add some tang to the recipe. Start with a tablespoon.
