I don’t mean to brag or anything, but this is a really super awesome recipe.
And I’m not lying when I say it’s a legit 15 minute meal.
It also involves parmesan cheese. Therefore >> automatic success.
Weeknight cooking can be a real b, am I right?
I get that.
Cooking a balanced meal from scratch isn’t always realistic.
Relying on canned goods, packaged broths and frozen vegetables can drastically reduce prep time. So use them!
Ain’t no shame.
These fresh cheese tortellini make my life so much easier. I buy the large package (1kg) and freeze half for another quick weeknight meal down the road. There are a number of brands available. I choose the one with the fewest weird ingredients.
This one wee clove of garlic is the only thing that requires a touch of prep for this recipe. Assuming you don’t count using a can opener as prep work.
Make changes and substitutions to your heart’s desire, too. Use chicken rather than veggie broth. Add kale instead of spinach. Swirl in a tablespoon of pesto for added oomph. Go bananas with the parmesan cheese.
Mostly importantly…grab a seat, preferably by a fire with a big juicy glass of red, and enjoy.
