Cheese Tortellini with Spinach and Slow Roasted Tomatoes

I love this cheese tortellini dish with spinach and slow roasted tomatoes. I always keep a couple bags of cheese tortellini in my freezer for emergencies. It comes in handy when I’m busy and/or feeling lazy. I love the simplicity of this dish. It’s so tasty. So, if you are looking for a meal that can be made in minutes, try this recipe.

Cheese Tortellini with Spinach and Slow Roasted Tomatoes
Serves 4 to 6

½ tablespoon salt – to add to boiling water
1 bag frozen cheese tortellini (16 oz. size)
2 cups slow roasted tomatoes
3 cups fresh spinach, washed and roughly chopped
Drizzle of olive oil
Fresh parmesan cheese-to taste

Fill a large pot ¾ full with water. Bring to a boil. Add a ½ tablespoon of salt.

Stir in frozen cheese tortellini. Cook until tortellini floats to the top and is soft. Drain and put tortellini in a medium bowl.

Stir in the slow roasted tomatoes and spinach. Drizzle with olive oil and stir again.
Garnish with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
