Cheese Tortellini with Brocolli

I'm in a supermarket the other day, when this pasta caught my eyes! I never tried cooking this before, so I bought cheese and spinach fillings. Mostly, I cooked pasta with tomato sauce or cream sauce. This time I made it differently, using only lime juice as the sauce. It turned out so good!

1 cup cheese tortellini
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 red pepper, sliced
2 tablespoon lime juice (or lemon)
1 cup broccoli (I used 2 cups)
wine (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese
Boil water, cook tortellini and set aside. In a pan, saute garlic, onion, and red pepper. Add broccoli and lemon juice , season with salt and pepper. Add cheese tortellini and mix until well blend. Transfer the pasta mix in a dish, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
