Lemon Ricotta Tortellini - A quick and easy one pot meal with broccoli and loaded with fresh herbs.
Tortellini is my thing. You know, that thing that you buy, just about every week, just because you know you can fall back on it when you decided to ditch your meal plan. You know the thing I mean now? We all have a thing, right? For some it's a frozen pizza and others a rotisserie chicken. Well, mine is tortellini.
I only buy the tortellini that is refrigerated. I get a bit snobby about the dry stuff. It just isn't the same! I highly recommend the stuff in the fridge.
If you want to make this a meatless meal, the cheese variety works. However, if you have a carnivore in the house, you can still get away with this meal by using either chicken or sausage tortellini. See, everyone wins.
Okay, so on to the dish. The entire thing comes together in well under a half hour. That's a bonus, huh? Oh, I'm sorry, that's not bonus enough? How about only using one pan? Does that do it for you? It does it for me! I love a one pot meal! Eat more. Wash less. That might be my new tagline.

I can't totally take credit for this meal. I use My Recipe Magic and while I was browsing around I came across a recipe called Fettuccine with Lemon Ricotta and Zucchini. It sounded good. It sounded easy. I had no fettuccine. I had no zucchini. I had no carrots. What? It was the end of the week, give me a break, I can't have tons of produce all week long. Anyway, I did have ricotta (I'm a good Italian girl, you can always find ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella in my fridge). I did have lemons. I most certainly did have tortellini so I turned her fettuccine dish into a tortellini dish.
There you have it - Lemon Ricotta Tortellini.
So tell me, what is your thing? The thing you buy all the time to fall back on?
