Ingredients

  1. Check 2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. Check 1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  3. Check 2 bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  4. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  5. Check 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  6. Check 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  7. Check 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  8. Check 1 pound cheese tortellini (fresh or frozen)
  9. Check 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  10. Check 1/2 cup grated Parmesan (2 ounces)

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the eggplant, bell peppers, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
