Tortillini with Green Beans


Talk about easy.

One large package of refrigerated fresh tortellini

One package of frozen cut green beans

1/2 cup olive oil

Six cloves diced garlic

One diced onion

One teaspoon salt

One teaspoon black pepper

Four cups chicken broth with one teaspoon of salt

Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onion and garlic till it is soft. Set aside.

Bring the broth to a boil

Add the tortellini and cook according to the package directions minus two minutes

Add the bag of green beans

You want the pasta al dente and the green beans bright green.

Strain everything but save the broth.

Mix the pasta, green beans, oil, garlic and onions.

Season with salt and pepper.

Thats it.

Serve hot or at room temperature with some  grated parmesan cheese.

Use the chicken broth to keep the pasta moist if you need to.
