Chicken and Broccoli Tortellini Casserole

Baby it’s cold outside!  This week it hasn’t gotten over 7 degrees here.  And, when you factor in the wind chill factor it’s bone chilling cold!   It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to snuggle in and not leave your warm house.  It also makes me crave comfort food.  I found this recipe for Chicken and Broccoli Tortellini Casserole in a magazine.  It looked so good and sounded even better.  And, since we’re on a broccoli kick this week, I thought it would be perfect for a frigid day.

Of course, I made a few tweaks to the original recipe.  And it was delicious!  I loved that it didn’t use a canned cream soup.  Instead, it made this gorgeous creamy white wine sauce.  It was so flavorful!  If you don’t want to use wine, you could always substitute more chicken broth.

Also, I had dried tortellini in my pantry — not the refrigerated kind.  So I just cooked them according to the package directions before adding them to the casserole.

This is a great one dish dinner!  I made it a few days before we were going to eat it and stashed it in the fridge until I was ready to bake it.  I just love make-ahead meals!

This casserole is definitely a keeper!  Perfect for cold, winter day!  What’s your favorite comfort food?
