Hmm...Dinner for 2...have you met my husband? He eats enough for at least 3, and I don't think he'd let me fix another meal without meat, so time to spice it up a bit!
I stared out by cooking some chicken tenderloins seasoned with some italian seasonings.
While the chicken is cooking away, time to chop up some tomatoes and pull out the spinach. We're kind of on a spinach kick since I bought the big bag and I refuse to let it go bad!
This is a multitasking meal, so we also have to get the tortellini going. These little guys start out tiny, but double in size. Make sure you use a large pot so there's plenty of room for them to float about.
When the tortellini is cooked, use a slotted spoon and move it to the skillet. It's ok if you get a bit of the water in there.
Remember the stuffed pasta? Well, I had some of the spinach and ricotta cheese mixture left over, so this seemed like a great place to use it up. Stir in a few spoonfuls of the deliciousness to the pasta mix.
Add another spoonful to the plate when you serve it!
So the "Dinner for 2 in 10 minutes" ended up taking a bit longer, but on the bright side, not only was it dinner for the two of us, but there's plenty left over. And I didn't have to hear about fixing another meatless meal!
