I was looking through my photos last night and found a few older photos for recipes that I never posted. I love this cheese tortellini dish with spinach and slow roasted tomatoes. I can’t believe I forgot to share it with all of you. The photos aren’t the greatest, but the recipe is simple and very tasty.
We always keep a couple bags of cheese tortellini in our freezer for emergencies. It comes in handy when we are busy and/or feeling lazy. I love making tortellini soup, salads, and pasta dishes.I also keep slow roasted tomatoes in the freezer. I make big batches and freeze them in smaller containers so I can pull them out when I need them.They sure came in handy for this recipe. I just defrosted and reheated the tomatoes before I added them to the cheese tortellini.
The slow roasted tomatoes are full of flavor and are perfect in this dish. I also stirred in fresh spinach, parmesan cheese, and added a little drizzle of olive oil. That is it. I love the simplicity of this pasta dish.
