Tortellini with Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce and Spinach
Tortellini with creamy sun-dried tomato sauce and spinach is a weeknight meal or a meal to impress guests! You’ll love the flavor the sun-dried tomatoes add to the sauce!
So, back to school has been fun. First my little man had a cold for a week. Then N, E, and I all got the stomach flu. I think it’s making me go a little crazy. Between the lack of sleep and all the grossness, I’m really ready for a little normality. Whatever that is.
In the meantime, easy meals are a must. If we’re eating.
This little pasta number is ready in 25 minutes and is a quick and easy vegetarian meal. Ben likes to grill some chicken to go with this but it’s totally not necessary – it’s a totally satisfying meal without any meat.
It’s super simple to make – while the tortellini boils, you make the sauce. All you need to do is sauté the onions, add the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach, and cook until the spinach is wilted. It only takes a couple minutes. Then you add the rest of the sauce ingredients and just let it cook while your tortellini finishes. Mix it all together and serve with a side salad or grilled chicken. Or both. Or steak! Steak would be yummy, too.
