Tortellini with grape tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes and basil
This is so simple and delicious! Really you cannot have such sublime flavor with less prep time!
2 packages of tortellini (I used one cheese filled and one pesto filled)
1 package of grape tomatoes, sliced
1/2 jar of diced sun dried tomatoes in oil
1 large bunch of fresh basil
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Freshly grated Parmesan for serving
Cook pasta per directions.
Meanwhile wash and shred basil, set aside
Slice grape tomatoes, set aside
When pasta is cooked, drain well and return to pot. add the tomatoes and basil and half the jar and oil to the pasta. Toss well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
This too can be eaten hot or warm and can be served family style or served in staggered stages for the busy family on the go.
