You won’t believe how easy it is to make this Spicy Skillet Tortellini, featuring lightly browned cheese tortellini and tomatoes sauteed with red pepper flakes and topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese! Try it, your whole family will love it!
For some reason, and much to Thing 2’s chagrin, I have been on a spicy kick lately.
But, in my defense, I have to say that all of these have either been optional (like the Burger Spread) or not so hot that Thing 2 could not eat them. And, in fact, he actually enjoyed the Veggie Quinoa Curry.
In this Spicy Skillet Tortellini and Tomatoes recipe, I was also careful to control the level of spice so that he would not object too much. But you can dial it up or down, depending on what your family likes!
This recipe was suggested to me by one of my high school friends with whom I am connected on Facebook. We have not seen each other in about 25 years, but the magic of Facebook connected us again and he was nice enough to give me a recipe similar to this one that I adapted a bit.
He also suggested another recipe that I also ended up loving and publishing, Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken. You will want to check that one out too, it’s also super easy and really tasty!
