Creamy Tortellini Skillet

February 19, 2014
This is one of my favorite ways to cook dinner. Toss your ingredients into a giant skillet and it all cooks up nice and neat within 15 minutes. Dinner is one pan.

OK, you have to be responsible,add a veggie somewhere in your dinner.  Mine does not have a vegetable.  Not shocking, most of my dishes don't.  My kids eat vegetables, but, most of them seem to do better when they are separate from the rest of the dish. Yes..weird.  That whole hiding veggies in your kids food does not work great around here. Carrots tossed in pasta, doesn't work. But, give them has a side with the pasta, it does.  We just go with it or we wind up with a couple dinner plates with the veggies picked out and children telling me their carrots look 'weird' and they won't eat them.  Hence, wasted carrots. Does this happen any place else besides my house?

Anyway it would be super easy to toss in some spinach, shredded carrots, baby tomatoes, whatever works for you and your family.

A perfect weeknight meal ready in no time!
