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.
Serve hot or at room temperature with some grated parmesan cheese.
Use the chicken broth to keep the pasta moist if you need to.
