Tortellini Broccoli Bake. Rocking Out To Two Gallants.

No one is going to leave it if Tortellini Broccoli Bake is what’s for dinner.

Does that sentence even make sense?

Put together tortellini and broccoli and cloak it in a dreamy Parmesan cream sauce, and you’ve got some fabulous eating to do.

I used tri-color tortellini just for the fun of it. Very festive looking.


Tortellini Broccoli Bake

Ingredients:

1 package (19 ounces) frozen cheese tortellini, cooked and drained
1 package (16 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
2 tablespoons chopped onion

Ingredients for the cheese sauce:

1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine the tortellini, broccoli, pimientos and onion; set aside.

2. In a large saucepan, sauté garlic in butter for 1 minute. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Gradually stir in milk until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese until melted. Fold in broccoli mixture.

3. Transfer to a greased 2-quart baking dish. Cover and bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes or until hot and bubbly, stirring twice. Top with remaining Parmesan. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serves 4-6

Two Gallants have a new album just out last month.

This is a bit more rocking than the stuff I have been listening to lately, but a change-up is always in order.

I love the drums and that hook is really infectious.
