2 containers (10 ounces each) refrigerated Alfredo sauce
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 package (20 ounces) refrigerated green and white mixed cheese tortellini
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained
1/2 cup garlic and herb-flavored or Parmesan-flavored bread crumbs
1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In medium-size bowl, stir together Alfredo sauce, 2 cups water and pepper. Pour 1 cup sauce mixture into bottom of 2-1/2-quart shallow casserole. Arrange half the tortellini (uncooked) in a single layer over sauce (see photo 1); sprinkle with chopped broccoli. Pour 1-1/2 cups sauce over top. Repeat layering remaining tortellini and remaining sauce. Cover with foil.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes. Remove from oven. Heat broiler.
In small bowl, stir together bread crumbs and olive oil until evenly coated. Sprinkle crumbs on top.
Place casserole under broiler about 4 inches from heat until crumbs are golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 8 servings.
