Pesto Chicken Tortellini

Pesto Chicken Tortellini

If you prefer eating a different lunch every day, this recipe can be made in small batches. Simply keep the tortellini, grilled chicken, artichoke hearts, and even the broccoli in the freezer until you’re ready for another batch. The open jars of pesto and sun-dried tomatoes will last for quite some time in the fridge.
