Tasty Tuesday with TBB: One Pot Pasta

Happy Tuesday Ya'll...another summer day is upon us! The clouds are rolling in and temperature drop the next few days is going to bring Fall like temps!!  I'm not sure how I feel about this!!

This week so far has been spent getting ready for the new school year! #thumdsdown Last night I looked up and it was 20 to 8 and I had yet to make dinner.  I needed something quick and easy.  Enter this One Pot Pasta dish!  That I totally made up one day...but was a big hit at a recent get together.

Usually when I am invited to someone's house, I bring the WINE!  But guess what?!?  Not everyone drinks!!  (and YES, I do still hang with them...lol...jk!!)  So when I was invited to lunch I whipped up this super easy pasta  as a side dish to go with the sandwiches we were going to have, with a few pantry staples!  It turned out delish and my friend told me that her husband ate it for a few nights afterward!

So, so easy!!  Give it a whirl!!

These three ingredients...that's it!!

The tortellini could be whatever flavor, too!!  And since these were just plain three cheese, I mixed it up with fire-roasted diced tomatoes.  When I made it for my friends, I used spinach and cheese tort with plain diced tomatoes...totally mix and match to your liking!!

Cook the pasta according to package directions, drain and rinse.
Tansfer to large mixing bowl.

Top with diced tomatoes heated quickly in the microwave.  (Also, I spooned them out, so there was less juice!!)

Add a dalloop of pesto...

Mix and enjoy!!

As a single girl, this will last me a few nights as a meal in itself.  But you can use it as a side dish for lunch or dinner as well.  And you can eat it right away still warm, or eat it right out of the bowl chilled the next day...honestly anything goes!!
