Tortellini Stir -Fry

Tortellini Stir -Fry

1 (9 ounce) package refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 (16 ounce) package fresh cut or frozen stir-fry vegetables
3/4 cup peanut stir-fry sauce
1/4 cup chopped cashews

Cook tortellini according to package directions.  Drain.  Set aside.  In large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat.  Add vegetables.  Cook fresh vegetables 3 to 5 minutes or frozen vegetables 7 to 8 minutes, or until crisp tender.  Add tortellini and stir-fry sauce.  Toss to coat.  Heat through.  Garnish with cashews.

This is one of our son Tyler's favorite recipes.  It is a fun twist to an Asian style dinner.  The peanut stir-fry sauce coats the vegetables with delicious slightly spicy flavor that encourages you to eat them. 
You can find the peanut sauce in the Asian food isle.
