The Easiest Dinner!

I went for a quick run after work and then came home and I threw together a super easy and delicious dinner last night.  I'll call it Spicy Shrimp Tortellini.


Frozen Cheese Tortellini
Small Onion
Crushed Red Pepper
Marinara Sauce

While I waited for the pasta water to boil, I sauteed the garlic, onion, and broccoli in a skillet.  Once the onion was soft, I added marinara sauce and brought it to a simmer and added in the shrimp to cook.  I cooked the tortellini according to the package (which was only 3 mins).   After the tortellini was done, I combined the sauce with veggies and shrimp with the pasta and topped with parmesan.  

It took about 20 minutes from start to finish!!  It was so easy and it tasted delicious.  Bobby even went back for seconds.  I didn't measure anything, so the recipe isn't very exact.  The great thing about this is that you can use any vegetable or protein and it can be portioned to serve 2 people or 10 people.


  1. Yummm! This sounds so good! I just picked up some tortellini randomly the other day when I saw it was on sale, but I hadn't quite figured out what to do with it yet. I think I just found my answer!

  2. Mmm sounds easy and healthy. I like that there's broccoli in there -- one of my favorite veggies!
