Cheesy Tortellini

I had you at cheese didn’t I…

This can be done on a weeknight in less than 10 min IF and ONLY IF you planned ahead a little.  As you know I’m out there kicking your butts till 6:30 or 7pm every night, then coming in and putting a nutritious meal on the table. That means I have to plan our meals and prep what I have planned.

Here’s what you need:

1 package of uncooked cheese tortellini 

1/2 roasted butternut squash

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk or non-fat milk 

3 cups of uncooked spinach

1 garlic clove chopped

What to prep ahead, start with roasting your butternut squash,  then take half of the roasted butternut squash and blend with your nutmeg, milk, S&P. That’s it.

The night you are going to eat this all you have to do is sauté the garlic clove, cook the spinach and boil the tortellini. Next, add the butternut purée in with the spinach and turn down low. When the tortellinis are cooked add them to the butternut squash and spinach then mix everything until coated and serve.

Done in under 10 min
