Tortellini w Asparagus, Spinach, & Sun-Dried Tomatoes
1 bag pre-made tortellini
1 ½ cup prepared marinara
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
2 to 4 generous handfuls fresh spinach
2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes
Parmesan cheese, to garnish
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Bring two saucepans of water to a boil (one for tortellini/one for asparagus) – can always do one at a time if you like.
Boil pre-made tortellini per package instructions.
Trim ends of asparagus and cut into thirds. Once water at a vigorous boil, add asparagus pieces and boil for 6 minutes, until soft. Drain in colander (same as tortellini).
Immediately transfer drained asparagus & tortellini to a saucepan and quickly add handfuls of spinach (while tortellini and asparagus till hot). Stir to wilt the spinach. Add basil, sun-dried tomatoes, marinara, and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine.
Enjoy with Parmesan cheese!
Tips: For more vegetables, sauté a container white or baby bella mushrooms with some chopped white onion and/or bell pepper.
