Ingredients

1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato
1/4 cup hot water
1/4 pound fresh asparagus spears (about 9 spears)
1/4 cup julienne-sliced zucchini
1/4 cup julienne-sliced carrot
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
3 ounces refrigerated cheese tortellini, uncooked
2 tablespoons warm canned low-sodium chicken broth, undiluted
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
Dash of salt
Dash of freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated Romano cheese

Preparation

Combine tomato and water in a small bowl; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Drain well. Chop tomato, and set aside.

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Remove scales from stalks with a knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Cut asparagus diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces.

Arrange asparagus, zucchini, carrot, and garlic in a vegetable steamer over boiling water. Cover and steam 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Place vegetables in a large bowl. Set aside, and keep warm.

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain well.

Combine chicken broth and next 3 ingredients, stirring well with a wire whisk. Place pasta in a serving dish; add tomato, vegetable mixture, and broth mixture, tossing gently. Sprinkle with Romano cheese, and serve immediately.
