“When we lived in Seattle, my favorite restaurant served a wonderful dish I ordered every time I ate there. When we moved away, I came up with this to satisfy my craving.” Darlene Brenden - Salem, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 packages (9 ounces each) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley

Directions
