Tortellini and Meat Sauce

26 Sep

So, I’m FINALLY uploading pictures to my computer… I knew the reason I wasn’t blogging so much wasn’t just because I’ve been uninspired, though that is one reason, the other reason though is that I have pictures (albeit not great ones – I need to bust out the good camera!) and I never upload them. So, here is a post of a meal from a few weeks ago – I don’t have much to say about it other than it was a super quick meal to make, as it uses one of my best friends – frozen tortellini, and was awesome.

Tortellini and Meat Sauce

* I apologize for the ugly picture – I really need to find somewhere with better lighting in my kitchen!

1/2 pound frozen cheese tortellini
1/2 pound ground beef
16 oz. favorite red sauce (homemade, from a jar – I make large batches and freeze – soon I’ll post the sauce recipe – I just want pictures first!)
Fresh Parsley, chopped for garnish


– Prepare tortellini as directed on package (usually bring water to a rapid boil, add pasta, simmer for about 5 minutes) and drain
– Meanwhile, brown ground beef and drain
– Add pasta sauce and let simmer about 10 minutes to marry the flavors a bit
– Add pasta to simmering sauce and toss a bit
– Top with freshly chopped parsley to garnish.

** This meal goes GREAT with garlic bread and a simple small side salad.
