Chicken Tortellini Toss

1 pkg. frozen tortellini or 2 9 oz. packages refridgerated
4 cups broccoli florets and/or cauliflower florets
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with italian herbs
1/2 a jar sun dried tomato pesto
1 9 oz. pkg. grilled chicken breast strips (I cook my chicken itself-I use two large breasts and season well with salt and pepper, bake in oven or cook in skillet in strips)
Parmesan cheese

IN a Dutch oven cook tortellini according to package directions. Steam broccoli OR you can add it to the pasta during the last 2-3 minutes of cooking time. I use the new broccoli steamers that steam in the microwave.

Return all ingredients to the Dutch oven.

Stir in undrained tomatoes, pesto and chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until heated through. Garnish with Parmesan.
