So, if you hadn’t noticed I kinda fell off the bandwagon with cooking everyday. In fact, everyday might have been a bit ambitious when you’re faced with temptations like going out for brunch with your friends on Saturday and having yummy leftovers in your fridge that you want to eat instead of making something new. But the point is not giving up! Right? Right.
Tonight’s dish was Spinach-Artichoke Cheesy Tortellini which came out of Rachael Ray’s Express Lane Meals. It was pretty simple thing to make, though I wish I’d have chopped the onion rather than using the grater like she’s suggested because it came out being onion mush and I would have preferred bigger chunks honestly, and I wish I’d thought to chop the artichokes before I started cooking because it felt like a race against time and I should have added some more salt, but otherwise it went rather smoothly.
In terms of eating, I’m of mixed opinion. It was a LOT of spinach and well… I’m a vegetable eating novice. I made it about halfway through my dinner and my stomach said, “If you eat any more of that green stuff, I am so going to projectile vomit over your keyboard.”
So, I ended up picking my way around the spinach for about half of my dinner. It wasn’t that it wasn’t good… but apparently that’s a thing that happens if you’re not used to eating veggies (or at least that’s what Phil tells me).
Leftover wise, a ton of it. I have an entire serving of tortellini for tomorrow plus an extra service of sauce which my plan is pretty much to use as dipping sauce with chips over the next few days.
I’m not sure I’ll try this recipe again for awhile, but it wasn’t all bad either.
