Creamy Spinach Tomato Tortellini
This recipe was supposed to include just tortellini (and if you have a full bag of tortellini just make that and don't add the extra pasta). However, I had half a bag of tortellini and half a bag of macaroni so I decided to combine them to make a large meal. Overall, I was pretty happy with the results, this was very easy to put together.
Recipe from The Bomshell Bling.
-1/2 bag tortellini (8 oz)
-1/2 box small shaped pasta
-2 teaspoon minced garlic
-1 cup chopped fresh spinach
-1 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
-1 teaspoon onion flakes
-2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
-1 1/2 cups half-and-half
-1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large skillet, heat the garlic. Add the tomatoes (undrained), chopped spinach, salt, pepper, basil and onion. Cook and stir until the mixture begins to bubble.
Combine the flour + half and half in a bowl. Pour into the skillet. Heat for about 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Add the cooked pasta and the Parmesan cheese.
