Tortellini Primavera

This delicious and creamy casserole is perfect for a weeknight dinner. 

Tortellini Primavera – Adapted from Pioneer Woman


  • 2 T minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 C diced/sliced carrots
  • 2 C cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 C chicken broth or stock
  • 1 1/2 C frozen peas
  • 1/2 C diced, cooked ham
  • 2 C frozen tortellini
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 C whipping cream
  • 1/4 C Parmesan cheese


Start the tortellini cooking in a large stockpot following the package directions.  Drain and rise when al dente.  Set aside. 

Meanwhile, sauté the carrots, onion, cauliflower and broccoli over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.  If needed, add a spray or two of olive oil.  Then, add in the chicken stock and simmer for 4-5 minutes until crisp-tender. 

Add in the diced ham and peas.  Simmer for 2-3 additional minutes.  Then, add in the tortellini. 

Season with basil, salt and pepper.  Top with the 1/4 C heavy cream and stir until combined and warm throughout. 

Mmmmm…  Serve warm and enjoy!
