The thing with summers in the ShiftMama house is that I am often by myself for dinners. With the husband working away and The Kid off playing with friends or family I find myself looking for meals that are healthy and easy to make (and clean up).
One of my favourites is a tortellini salad. This dish can be served hot or cold so is perfect for dinner and a leftovers lunch.
Here's what you need:
- package of cheese filled rainbow tortellini
- cherry or grape tomatoes
- fresh green beans (or you could use broccoli or any other veg that you like)
- Kraft Ranch Dressing
Cook the tortellini as directed on the package, drain and set aside momentarily. If you are planning on serving this as a cold salad I recommend rinsing with cool water to speed up the cooling process.
Slice the tomatoes in half and steam the beans.
Combine tortellini, vegetables, and drizzle with ranch dressing.
It's that simple!
