Most days of the week I have no idea what to make for dinner and just end up making tacos or something. Don’t get me wrong we eat a LOT of tacos around here, but there are times (it’s not often, but it does happen) where the last thing I want is another freaking tortilla. And since we haven’t been eating any meat at home besides some fish, it makes things even harder.
Corey is completely game for the vegetarian thing, as long as I keep it interesting which means no salads. “What am I? A freaking rabbit?” No, not the last time I checked. And now that Cooper has two (but I think soon to be 3) teeth, he’s starting to enjoy finger foods and so I’m trying to think of meals we can all eat instead of having to cook two different things. Let’s just hope he’s not as picky an eater as I was! (I literally only ate meat and cheese on my sandwiches until High School).
Anyways, here’s a quick recipe I found while browsing the time suck that is Pinterest the other night. I changed a few things based on what I already had in the cabinet and voila! A fancy new dinner that has quickly become one of our favorites. And you know its good if we ate the whole pan! Twice! We are not usually left over people, but there was not one bite of this left both times I made it. Official Corey Tyler Thumbs Up Seal of Approval
Veggies! (we used squash, zucchini, broccoli, and mushrooms but any combination would work)
1 can diced tomatoes – drained
Red pepper flakes (optional but recommended!)
CHOP, STIR, TOP WITH CHEESE, AND BAKE!
Seriously, you don’t even have to cook the tortellinis first. I deserve a drink for this one.
