  • 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.
