The day is finally over, and all you want to do is take off your shoes and relax. A glass of wine will be fine. Perhaps the sounds of relaxing music will be enough. Maybe you are sitting in a hot tub and hear your toes moving in the water. Ahh … calm. Amazingly peaceful.
… and then the army, known as your family, wakes you up with stretch marks and grunts, asking, “What’s for lunch?” The nerves of the people you love. How dare they try to conquer your world!
In an attempt to restore a world that rightfully belongs to you (and get as close to the bathtub as possible), you warrior must save the day with dinner tonight. Don’t worry. You won’t run away. You don’t sweat, for that matter. However, you will overcome hunger. You keep silencing stomachs that moan from matter.
Put on your armor (or a trusted apron). You are going to cook dinner tonight! (… and it won’t even be that hard).
Tonight’s favorite weapon is Tortellini cheese with pesto sauce, which is distinguished by a delicious product, a mixture of dried tomatoes and garlic pesto … Take it!
Here are the requirements:
- 1/2 cup dried tomato and garlic pesto
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 packets (9 ounces) chilled cheese tortellini
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups of cherry tomatoes in half
Gather your ammunition … now you are ready for war.
Prepare a mixture of tomato and garlic pesto, as indicated on the jar, with olive oil and water. Set aside. This is your secret weapon.
Make the tortellini as indicated on the package. Drain and leave approximately 1/3 cup of water in the pan. Return the pasta to the pan. Add salt, pepper and a mixture of dried tomato and garlic pesto (your secret weapon) and tomatoes. Mix and serve.
This dish will dominate any large and noisy army … or at least in a family of 5, which is very hungry. See how they cause such a delight. See how they are drowned out in pure happiness. Note the lack of sweat on the forehead … even sweat. They would cheer you up, but their mouths are full of delicious goodness … and it’s good with you because you still prefer silence
Oh, so delicious is simple. “The food you love, the time you deserve.” Now return your throne and hurry to this bath!
