Tortellini with Tomato and Artichoke

I know that recipe title sounds pretty easy -'s even easier than you think. It dawned on me that I always like new really easy and really fast meal ideas and maybe you all would, too. So here's one I did last night and it seriously took me maybe, maybe, six minutes. It's not fancy, it's definitely not gourmet, but it's beyond easy and it's tasty. This is perfect for a quick summer dinner (or lunch) and it's just a perfect meal for those nights when you know you have a busy day or you're just not in the mood to cook, or just not in the mood to have the kitchen (and therefore your whole house if you're me) so stinkin' hot when it was 90 that day!! So here it is.

Tortellini with Tomato and Artichoke
  • 1 bag frozen tortellini
  • 1 3-pack tomatoes (I get them for a dollar at Walmart)
  • 1 can Artichoke hearts (You can sometimes find these on sale - when you do - grab a few cans!)
  • Olive oil
  • Basil (or other herbs you like)
--Heat tortellinis according to the package.
--Meanwhile, slice the tomatoes and artichokes into bit size pieces.
--Drain tortellinis and return to pot adding tomatoes and artichokes.
--Add a little Olive Oil to coat things and then sprinkle with herbs!!
--We sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on ours to make it just that much better. Everything's better with Parmesan!
