It’s One-Pot Creamy Tortellini Pasta Recipe time! I was debating whether to prepare the classic Mac and Cheese and or this creamy recipe. I decided to go for the creamy tortellini. The reason I choose the One Pot Creamy Tortellini Pasta Recipe is that I only need one pot!
As much I love cooking I am also a foodie so I am always up to trying other cuisines. Neither of course is Greek recipes, but I always like to change our weekly menu. I believe that there should always be variations, for example, vegetables, pasta, salads. I avoid fried food always have and now even more so. My twist to this recipe is that I added just a bit of white wine. I also used leek instead of an onion to give it a sweeter taste.
Inspired by Italian cuisine this delicious creamy One-pot Tortellini recipe is a delicious and basically budget-friendly dish. Most of the recipes I prepare are budget-friendly. I have been budgeting ever since I can remember, I don’t think I have ever walked into a supermarket and just fill the cart without a shopping list. I went old school, writing everything down on a pad and not my phone. In the past, I would keep everything on my phone but after it crashed without reason the customer service department could not fix it. So, that’s when I decided to go back to writing my shopping list.
Do you write your grocery list?
I was going to write another post about this but I decided to add it to this post. Krystina from @kouzounaskitchen and I are starting a podcast. Mainly talking about Food, drinks, and more will be our topics of conversation. We will be interviewing Chefs and Food bloggers. 🙂 Our first episode will be up soon but I will keep you informed of the date and time in case you might want to tune in. Our podcast is called “behind the greek apron” cute don’t you think?
Have a great morning/afternoon/evening all!!
