Some pasta for a Tuesday
I think it’s about time for some tortellini.
Although tortellini is not my favorite type of pasta, it does have its place in the pasta world.
And its place is in this dish with spinach and herbs! Even though it’s 62 degrees F outside today (!!!), I feel like we need some pasta. All that chocolate has got me craving pasta. I mean, you would think I would be craving something a little healthier like salad, but at least this pasta dish has spinach in it, right?!
