Tortellini with Spinach & Pesto

This is a Kara-made creation that is a perfect one bowl meal for busy nights. This could also be chilled and served as a cold pasta salad, adding the spinach later.

It seriously doesn’t get any easier than this! Costco tortellini (they had me at 7-cheese) & pesto…pre-washed, bagged spinach, a chopped tomato & cheese! Serve with some olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette & bread and you’ve got a complete meal that smells and tastes just like Italy.

3 cups tortellini

3 T. pesto

2 large handfulls of spinach

1 roma tomato, chopped

Cook tortellini according to package directions. Place spinach in a bowl. Remove tortellini from water and toss in bowl with pesto and spinach to coat, letting spinach wilt down just a little. (Add a spoonful or two of pasta water if pesto seems too thick). Top with tomato & cheese, season with salt and pepper as desired. Yum!
