Updated May 7, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1
    (16-oz.) jar Alfredo pasta sauce
  • 1 1/4
    cups water
  • 1/2
    teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 2
    (9-oz.) pkg. refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
  • 1
    (14-oz.) pkg. frozen broccoli florets
  • 1
    cup Parmesan croutons, slightly crushed

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, combine Alfredo pasta sauce, water, basil and pepper; mix well with wire whisk. Stir in tortellini and broccoli. Spoon into ungreased 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish. Cover with foil; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350°F. Bake covered for 45 minutes.
  • 3
    Uncover baking dish; stir well. Sprinkle croutons evenly over top. Cover; bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated.

  • Use a few chopped fresh basil leaves in place of the dried basil.
  • Look for Alfredo sauce in a jar in the pasta sauce aisle. Do not use refrigerated Alfredo sauce; it can separate when heated and may curdle during baking.
  • The casserole is nice and saucy right out of the oven, so serve it right away.
