Feeding My Enthusiasms: Fast Dinner

Generally you want or need to repair dinner rapidly. I used to be fortunate this night to have some leftover rotisserie hen, some ricotta tortellini, some pesto sauce, some pine nuts from the freezer, and some veggies available. Put collectively they made a scrumptious meal in a really quick time. Sweetie was a really comfortable man and stated I could make this any time.

The very first thing to do is to place a giant pot of water on to boil to cook dinner the tortellini. Whereas that is coming to a boil, toast the pine nuts in a big skillet. It solely takes a minute or two. Set these apart and chop some onion – I used inexperienced onion, however yellow or white works, too. Spray the identical skillet you used to cook dinner the pine nuts with a bit of olive oil, then add the onions and sauté, stirring typically. Whereas these are cooking, chop some tomato…I used a few half dozen grape tomatoes. Add these to the onions, stir, and allow them to start to sauté, too. Dice into chunk measurement items the cooked hen. (You might additionally use cooked turkey, cooked Italian sausages.) 

By now the water needs to be actually boiling. Add some salt, if desired, after which the tortellini. Stir them each jiffy to cook dinner the pasta half evenly, however be mild so the fillings stays inside.

Add the cubed hen to the onion-tomato combination and stir to mix. Flip the warmth to the bottom setting, cowl and let all of it warmth up.

Prepare to empty the pasta when it’s cooked al dente and cook dinner a few cup of frozen peas within the microwave. Examine the pasta and when it’s prepared, drain and put into a big bowl. Add a giant scoop of pesto sauce and stir to mix with the pasta. Add the chicken-onion-tomato combination and the pine nuts and stir gently to mix.

Serve directly with the recent peas on the facet.

I do know that there are not any precise measurements for this recipe. If you happen to really feel you want them, make a remark asking for that and I will strive to determine the quantities I used, O.Okay?
