LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Melt butter in 4-quart Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Cook garlic, carrot, onion and celery in butter 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 Stir in water and bouillon granules. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Stir in beans and tortellini. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tortellini are tender.
  • 3 Stir in parsley and pepper. Top each serving with pesto and cheese. Serve immediately.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you like, try 6 cups vegetable or chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon granules.

In a hurry? Substitute a 9-ounce package of refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini instead of the dried tortellini. It cooks in just 6 to 8 minutes so you can decrease the simmer time in step 2.
