Easy Tomato Tortellini


This picture is from last summer’s garden, when we had hundreds of tasty tomatoes. This year’s crop is barely started, but we’re already looking forward to using the tomatoes in recipes like this one.

This tortellini recipe is adapted from Chatelaine’s Quickies 2:Veggies and More, and it’s quick, easy, and delicious.
