Directions

  1. Reserve 1-1/4 cups broth. Bring remaining broth to a boil in a large pot, add tortellini and cook until tender, drain well.
  2. In a small bowl, blend cornstarch into 1 1/4 cups of reserved broth.
  3. In a large saucepan, saute garlic and basil in the butter or margarine for 2 minutes over a medium heat. Add the cornstarch-broth mixture to the saucepan. Cook and stir until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
  4. Place tortellini in a serving dish, pour the broth-mixture, and Parmesan cheese into the serving dish and toss. Serve with toothpicks.

I used this recipe as a main course for dinner and it was great! The only change I made was to saute sliced mushrooms with the garlic and basil. Served with a salad, it was perfect for a meatless meal.

This is awful! Very boring. I don't recommend it.

This recipe couldn't be easier - I bought pepperoni and mozzerella stuffed tortellini and prepared everything hours before the party. I served it warm, but people ate them long after they had cooled. Next time I make these, I will present them better - the dish needed color...

My husband and I really did enjoy this dish. It is very simple to make and really is a simple and tasty dish. Very good flavor without making it too strong of a sauce. I make with a seafood dinner and it was just the perfect compliment. Thanks for the post.

I made this as an appetizer for Christmas Day and my family loved it! It was easy to make and quite delicious. I used tri-color tortellini and it looked very nice. I will definately make this again. It's not only good as an appetizer but I also think it would make a great side dish for parties.

I make a soup version of this recipe using more chicken broth, a handful of fresh baby spinach and green onion and a container of pesto from Trader Joes. It is divine on a crisp fall day ...

These were a big hit at the last party I attended, they were gone quickly! I did add the sauce to the cooked tortelli when I got to my destination as I found if you pre-mix it gets a little dry, but still not bad! Thank you!

I have made this recipe many times since getting it from this website. I am always asked to bring it to parties. Tastes wonderful either hot or cold. Thanks for a great recipe.
