1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the broth and flour. In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until hot. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes.

3. Add the broth mixture to the skillet and bring to a boil. Cook the sauce, stirring occasionally, until it thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese, parsley and salt.

4. Add vegetables and tortellini to the boiling water; return the water to a simmer and cook until the vegetables and tortellini are tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

5. Drain; add to the skillet with the sauce and stir to coat.
