Creamy Spinach Tortellini
amazing. mouthwatering . incredible.
"can't wait to make it over & over again" kind of recipe.
1 pkg (16oz) Frozen Cheese Tortellini
1 Small Onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
3 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 can (14-1/2 oz) Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1 pkg (10oz) Frozen Chopped Spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
1-1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1-1/2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Additional grated Parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese, optional
1. In a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
2. Add the tomatoes, spinach, basil, salt & pepper. Cook & stir over medium heat until liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes.
3. Stir in cream and cheese. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 8-10 minutes or till thickened.
4. Meanwhile, cook tortellini according to the package directions...I suggest getting your water ready & heating while you work on steps 1,2 & 3.
5, Drain tortellini, toss with sauce. Sprinkle with additional cheese if desired.
