Tortellini with Asparagus & Lemon
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
love this recipe
This has certainly made the list of favorites in our house! So fresh and light...much needed since we have been on comfort food overload from the holidays. Good anytime of the year! I made some chicken breasts seasoned with lemon pepper with it. Yum!
This was super good!! I made it twice this week. I served it with a barbecued tri tip and with hamburgers. Just be sure to reserve some pasta water to loosen the pasta if it gets dry. Definitely adding this one to my go-to recipes.
Delicious! We loved this dish! Very light, flavorful with the herbs and perfect touch of lemon. I added grilled chicken to ours. Will be making again!
We LOVED this! I divided this recipe in half for just my husband and I, and it did seem to give 3 good-sized portions. I only had dry tortellini so using the conversion, I started with about 6 ounces dry. I also only used dry parsley (rounded 1/8 tsp) and dry dill weed (about half of 1/8 tsp). I did do the grated lemon and fresh lemon juice (which I think really made a difference). This was so good I can't wait to try it again!Update: made this again this evening except with leftover asparagus. I made everything exactly as-is except didn't cook the asparagus long in the skillet (just long enough to heat it). I think the recipe may even do well without the Parmesan, which I may try next time.

This was delicious. I love lemon and thought it was perfect. I like how versatile the recipe is. I pretty much add whatever protein or veggies I have on hand and it's always turned out good.
I live alone so only used one package of tortellini. Cannot imagine it with two. I only halved the tortellin, nothing else. Delicious!
Pretty good as written. And I used leftover grilled chicken like the author suggested. My wife and oldest kid thought it was too lemony. I think in the future I will skip the lemon zest and only add the juice. And I'll add toasted pine nuts.
I added chopped left over boiled shrimp which mixed beautifully with the other flavors. Easy recipe with excellent taste.
