I usually make this dish for birthdays or holiday dinners. It's a great main dish or side dish. Everyone—even my young granddaughters—enjoys the combination of broccoli, cheese and tortellini.—Esther McCoy, Dillonvale, Ohio.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 16, 2014

"All I make this for love it! The only difference is I saute up some boneless chicken seasoned with seasoned salt, pepper and garlic and add to it before baking."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 29, 2014

"Tastes really good. But next time, I'll double the sauce."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 27, 2010

"This was really good. I made it exactly as the recipe said, except that I used fresh broccoli that I cooked along with the tortellini. Oh, and I left out the onion because I didn't feeling like chopping 2 tablespoons. Next time I think I will add some cooked chicken or ham."
