Simply sumptuous! This savory bowl of veggies, pasta and beans is a meal in itself!

Ingredients

2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
garlic clove, finely chopped
1
medium carrot, cut into julienne strips
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
medium celery stalk, chopped (1/2 cup)
6
cups water
2
teaspoons vegetable or chicken bouillon granules
1
can (19 oz) Progresso™ red kidney beans, drained, rinsed
1
package (10 ounces) dried cheese-filled tortellini (2 1/2 cups)
1
tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/4
teaspoon pepper
6
tablespoons basil pesto
6
tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 Melt butter in 4-quart Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Cook garlic, carrot, onion and celery in butter 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 Stir in water and bouillon granules. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Stir in beans and tortellini. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tortellini are tender.
  • 3 Stir in parsley and pepper. Top each serving with pesto and cheese. Serve immediately.
Tips  

If you like, try 6 cups vegetable or chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon granules.

In a hurry? Substitute a 9-ounce package of refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini instead of the dried tortellini. It cooks in just 6 to 8 minutes so you can decrease the simmer time in step 2.
