I did something slightly out-of-character at the beginning of this week – I created a menu plan and I have stuck with it all week. I was so excited about the new recipes I had found, but as I worked my way through the recipes this week, I found myself less than thrilled with the results. Until last night.

Oh my goodness! The tortellini that I cooked up for dinner was incredible, and everyone loved it. And the best part….it was really simple and was ready in about 30 minutes. And there was enough left over today to have it again for lunch. Yum!
