EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Cheese-filled tortellini is available both dried and fresh. Dry tortellini is on the shelf with other dry pasta; fresh tortellini is refrigerated near the dairy case with other fresh pasta. Fresh pasta cooks much more quickly than dry pasta. This stew recipe is developed using dry tortellini.

Made with vegetables broth, this stew is entirely meatless. The combination of beans, pasta and cheese provides complete protein.

Ladle the stew into sturdy serving bowls, and sprinkle it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh basil. At the table, pass the pepper grinder.
