Tortellini Veggie Toss

Zac's at work so I went easy tonight. Tortellini Veggie Toss!

Here's what we're using for this:

A jar of spaghetti sauce, frozen broccoli/cauliflower/carrots, cheese tortellini & shredded Parmesan cheese.

First you pour the sauce in a sauce pan & bring it to a boil over medium heat. Once it's bubbling (& spattering a mess all over your stove top!) pour in the bag of frozen veggies.

Give it a good stir & then cover it. Let it go for 10 minutes, stirring a time or two.

While that is simmering get the tortellini cooked - according to package directions. Mine was boiled in water with some olive oil poured in - 7 to 9 minutes.

Once the pasta is cooked & the sauce is all simmered up drain the tortellini & then toss it all together.

Serve it up with some Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. Because it was a lazy no-Daddy dinner we just had a Caesar salad with it - nothing too fancy!


Tortellini Veggie Toss

1 jar spaghetti sauce (gor for a move savory one - not the sweeter one)
1 16-oz bag frozen broccoli, cauliflower/carrots
1 package cheese tortellini
shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta & drain. While it's going bring the sauce to a boil over medium heat. Pour the veggies into the boiling sauce & cover. Let it simmer for 10 minutes, stirring a time or two. Once it's all cooked toss it together. Top with some Parmesan & dig in!
