Updated Oct 22, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 oz) refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, then cut into 1/4-inch slices (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped yellow bell pepper
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ dark red kidney beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes with basil and garlic, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Cook and drain tortellini as directed on package.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and bell pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender.
  • 3
    Stir in beans, tomatoes, chili sauce and salt. Cook 4 to 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Stir in tortellini. Sprinkle with parsley.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Any color of bell pepper can be used. Why not try a combination of red, yellow and green?
  • tip 2
    If you have fresh basil in your garden, go ahead and substitute it for the parsley.
  • tip 3
    Spoon the tortellini mixture into a shallow serving bowl, and sprinkle with a little shredded Parmesan cheese before adding the parsley. Then add a couple of fresh parsley sprigs to the side of the dish.
