Ingredient Tips

If you use a different pasta than the recipe calls for, make sure to adjust your cook time according to package directions.

No wine or sherry? You can always use chicken or vegetable broth in its place.

This can be a good opportunity to use up partial bags of frozen veggies. Or turn to your fresh veggie drawer for inspiration.


Cook frozen vegetables and tortellini in a pot of boiling salted water until tortellini are cooked through, 67 minutes; drain well and return to pot.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions; cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in wine; cook 1 minute.

Whisk in broth; bring to a simmer. Stir in cream, Dijon, and thyme; return sauce to a simmer. Add 1 cup Parmesan, stirring until melted; season sauce with salt and pepper.

Toss vegetables and tortellini with sauce until coated; serve with Parmesan.
