1 can 14-ounce vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth2 Tbsp all-purpose flour1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil3 cloves garlic, sliced1 cup shredded fontina cheese or 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese1 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon, dill or chives or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon⅛ tsp salt4 cup chopped vegetables, such as broccoli, carrots and snap peas, or 16-ounce bag frozen mixed vegetables1 16-ounce package frozen cheese tortellini


1. Put a large pot of water on to boil.

2. Meanwhile, whisk broth and flour in a small bowl. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until just beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the broth mixture to the pan, bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese, tarragon (or dill or chives) and salt.

3. Add vegetables and tortellini to the boiling water; return the water to a simmer and cook until the vegetables and tortellini are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain; add to the pan with the sauce and stir to coat.
