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.

"This was good, added a cup of roasted chicken before baking and only baked for about half an hour. I thought it could use a bit more sauce too but everyone else loved it. I would do one and a half times the sauce next time."

"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."

"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."
