A great way to eat lots of veggies at once! Store bought four cheese tortellini is tossed with bright flavorful pesto and a variety of colorful roasted veggies. A delicious, easy dinner you’ll want to make again and again! Preferably boil tortellini during last 7 minutes of veggies roasting so they’ll both finish and be warm at the same time.
