In this recipe, our chefs managed to strike a balance between comfort and nutrition by combining creamy cheese tortellini with kale, and finishing it off with a crispy panko Parmesan topping. But perhaps the best part about it all is that this dinner requires minimal pots and pans. One, to be exact.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
Cheese Tortelloni(ContainsWheat, Eggs, Milk)
2% Reduced Fat Milk(ContainsMilk)
Vegetable Stock Concentrate
Wash and dry all produce. Preheat broiler to high. Thinly slice garlic. Remove and discard kale stems and ribs, then thinly slice leaves.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium ovenproof pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add kale and a splash of water. Toss until softened, 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Add milk, stock concentrate, and 1/4 cup pesto, and stir to combine. Add tortellini. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens and tortellini are tender, 6-7 minutes. Add a splash of water if necessary.
While tortellini cooks, combine panko, Parmesan cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: If you don’t have an ovenproof pan, transfer tortellini to a small baking dish.) Once tender, sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over tortellini.
Transfer pan to oven, and broil until browned and bubbling, 1-2 minutes.
Divide tortellini between bowls and enjoy!
