Two Peas and Their Pod
1/2 Tablespoon salt-to add to boiling water
1 bag frozen cheese tortellini (16 oz. size) *I used the tortellini from the pasta aisle
2 cups slow roasted tomatoes *I used canned petite cut tomatoes, but roasted would be way better!
3 cups fresh spinach, washed and roughly chopped
Drizzle of olive oil
Fresh parmesan cheese-to taste *I didn't add extra cheese b/c I haven't exercised in weeks
1. Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water. Bring to a boil. Add a 1/2 T of salt. Stir in frozen cheese tortellini. Cook until tortellini floats to the top and is soft. Drain and put tortellini in a medium bowl.
2. Stir in the slow roasted tomatoes and spinach. Drizzle with olive oil and stir again.
3. Garnish with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Serve warm.
This is basically what I did, except I added my tortellini to the skillet where I had sauted my spinach and tomatoes and a small clove of garlic. Mixed it all together and YUM!! I can't wait to make this again! And I can't wait to have my garden!! Fresh herbs and veggies!! And it's supposed to be almost 80 degrees by the weekend (unless I was dreaming early this morning when the weather was on!) AWESOME!!!!
