As keeping with normalcy around here, things have been crazy most days. I have my mind and spirit going in all different directions and I keep hoping that they'll all settle in where I want them to be but I think I'm coming to the realization that they may just be where they're supposed to be at this point - not necessarily where I want them to be. Ah well, keep moving forward if nothing else, right?
This was a dish that I came up with a couple weeks ago. And truth be told, this recipe was almost one of desparation. I try to grocery shop on Sunday for what we're going to eat during the week - and then not go back to the store until the following Sunday unless it's an emergency. Usually by Friday we're out of milk and our vegetables take the turn toward the frozen kind, but it seems to be working to keep our food bill down.
Take your frozen tortellini and cook them according to the package directions. Once they're done drain them and then put your pot back on the stove. Add cream to the pan (heavy or light, whatever you have in the house - about 12 ounces is good), 3 big handfuls of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Stir together until it almost boils and then add in the tortellini. Serve with a nice salad (with light dressing of course!)
