I am a meal planner by nature. Every Saturday, I check the calendar for the upcoming week, look around and see what we have in the pantry and the fridge, and decide on what meals to make. Usually. Sometimes I don't. Those days, I throw something together at the last minute so we don't resort to takeout again. (Trust me. We do that too.)
This meal is one I often make when I need something quick and easy. And good. It is a simple tortellini alfredo with chicken. The express version! I made it last night when I looked at the clock and realized what time it was! I had a couple bags of Barilla Cheese Tortellini and two jars of Bertolli Alfredo Sauce in the pantry. I stock up when they are on sale for just this reason. I grabbed a bag of fully cooked chicken breast strips from the freezer and heated them with the sauce while the pasta boiled. When the pasta was done, I drained it and added it to the sauce. I added some frozen broccoli and fresh Italian bread, and we had dinner in less than thirty minutes!
Do you have a favorite quick meal to share?
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my friends.
Oh! In the interest of full disclosure, I must add that we like this dish better when I make it with shrimp!
