Grilled Chicken and Veggie Tortellini

This recipe is in the August 2010 Southern Living magazine. It was an easy "throw together" dish this week. Here is the recipe:

4 small zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
2 skinned and boned chicken breasts
1 Tbsp. freshly ground Italian herd seasoning
1 (19-oz.) package frozen cheese-filled tortellini
1 (7-oz.) container refrigerated reduced-fat pesto
2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped

Garnish: grated Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat grill to 300 to 350 (medium) heat. Sprinkle zucchini and chicken with seasoning.

2. Grill zucchini and chicken at the same time, covered with grill lid. Grill zucchini 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until tender. Grill chicken 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done.

3. Meanwhile, prepare tortellini according to package directions.

4. Coarsely chop chicken and zucchini. Toss tortellini with pesto, tomatoes, chicken, and zucchini. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
