Tonight for dinner

In case you needed an idea, and because it's been a while since I posted a recipe. This one is really yummy and really filling, and super easy.

Tortellini Alfredo with Roasted Red Peppers and Fresh Basil.


Sounds good already, hmmm?

Ingredients:

1 bag of cheese tortellini. Whatever kind you like.
1 12oz. jar of roasted red peppers, chopped
1/2 cup to a cup (use your discretion) of fresh basil, thinly sliced
1 jar of alfredo sauce. I recommend Ragu Original. NOT the garlic kind.
If you like your protein, like I do, chop up 2 or 3 chicken breasts and fry up the pieces. MMmmm.

Heat up your alfredo sauce in a medium sauce pan. Cook the tortellini according to the directions on the bag. When the sauce is heated through, add the roasted red peppers and half the basil. If you're adding chicken, throw this in now too. When the tortellini is cooked and rinsed, add that to the mixture. Now stir!!!

Add some freshly ground black pepper to the mix, and/or some parmesan cheese.

When you're ready to serve, sprinkle the rest of the basil on. Serve with some garlic bread or better yet, breadsticks!

SO GOOD. Try it and let me know how you like it.
