  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 ½ cups chopped yellow onion

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 4 cups lower-sodium vegetable broth

  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 (3 inch) Parmesan rind (1 ounce)

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in garlic, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly, until all the vegetables are coated, about 1 minute. Pour in wine; cook, stirring once or twice, until reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes, Parmesan rind and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
