Hope you all have had such a lovely weekend. We had some friends from NC in town and it really was so sweet to reconnect. Charleston is home now, and we love it, but golly we miss so many people in NC!
Friday night I saved a super easy supper of tortellini, salad, and bread. I want to share the breakdown of this meal to remind anyone that YOU CAN DO THIS! You can cook a meal for 6-8 people that doesn’t totally stress you out, break the budget, or require days of prep. YOU CAN cook a meal that is semi-homemade, fast, and comforting. YOU CAN cook a meal with little people underfoot. YOU CAN DO THIS!
Here’s a quick breakdown:
All the pasta went into a pretty bowl stirred with the entire jar of sauce, then topped with fresh grated parm and extra basil from our “garden” (aka 2 pots each containing one herb, because I’m determined to keep the garden small and keep it alive this year). *This particular sauce is super mild so I am really glad I added the extra basil and parm. Plus, it just makes it so fancy!
And there you have it. Dinner for 5 adults and 3 kids (all 3 devoured with tortellini, huge victory.)
Dessert was break and bake chocolate chunk cookies and there wasn’t a single one left on the plate.
