Reviews for Tortellini Broccoli Bake
"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."
"Tastes really good. But next time, I'll double the sauce."
"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."
