Tortellini’s and Roasted Tomato & Bell Pepper Sauce

This is such an easy meal to make, and is wonderful if you’re feeling something fresh and light. Although it does have meat in it, you can easily substitute the Proscuitto Tortellini for cheese or spinach stuffed tortellini’s. I bought the Rana (Linked for your convenience.) brand that you can get at most grocery stores. This meal also includes sauteed mushrooms and an easy-to-make sauce that is so good just on it’s own. Topped with Parmasean and a basil leaf. I like to make this dinner on weeknights when I want something that doesn’t take hours of preperation and energy because of after school activities or I am just feeling tired. I usually pair this pasta up with caesar salad and a nice glass of pinot noir!
