Cheese Veggie Tortellini

Presently, I have fun with finding some Italian food for my dinner but I'm so bored with the same shape of macaroni or pasta. I found the new one it's a tortellini which is a rind-shaped. Absolutely, I still cook for my healthy recipe so I choose my favorite vegetable, verdant broccoli.

Broccoli Benefits
Broccoli is a spectacular and unique package of versatile disease fighters and abundant in numerous strong, well-known phytochemicals and antioxidants, including indoles, isothiocyanates, quercetin, glutathione, beta carotene, vitaminC, folate, lutein, glucarate, and glutathione. Broccoli is extremely strong in anticancer activity, particularly against lung, colon, and breast cancers. Like other cruciferous vegetables, it speeds up the removal of estrogen from the body, helping suppress breast cancer. Broccoli is rich in cholesterol-reducing fiber and has antiviral and antiulcer activity. It is a super source of chromium that helps regulate insulin and bloodsugar. Broccoli is also a good source of calcium, thus help fight osteoporosis. Source: foodasfood.com
