Yet another quick and easy, very delicious recipe sure to please everyone around you!
Let's make some tortellini casserole!
First grab the following ingredients:
2 (10 oz) containers refrigerated alfredo sauce (of your choice, I use Buitoni)
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 (20 oz) pkg refrigerated green and white mixed cheese tortellini (again, use whatever you prefer, but I use Buitoni)
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained
1/2 C. Garlic and Herb bread crumbs
1 TBSP olive oil1.
Now I realize some people out there may feel the need for some MEAT with their meal. I've used crumbled bacon myself for this casserole, and I have a friend who adds cut up chicken to hers. Whatever floats your boat people.
I've also been known to add grated Parmesan cheese and wheat germ to the bread crumb/olive oil topping. Shh, don't tell my kids!
Heat Oven to 375.
In med. sized bowl stir together alfredo sauce, 2 cups water and pepper.
Pour 1 cup sauce mixture into bottom of 2 1/2 quart shallow casserole dish.

Cover with foil.
Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven, heat broiler.
In small bowl stir breadcrumbs and oil together. Sprinkle on topof casserole.
