Recommended product

Hey all,

Had this as a quick dinner last night. Safeway had Barilla Tortellini on sale last week, or two weeks ago, so I thought I would try a package of Three Cheese Tortellini. When I put the kettle on the fire to boil, I diced a 1/4 of an onion, 2 garlic gloves and sauted in a little olive oil. I tossed in 1 tsp each of dried basil, oregano, thyme, plus a pinch of red pepper flakes and some salt & pepper. I then added a can of petite diced tomatoes, with their natual juices, letting this simmer until the pasta was done, about 10 minutes after you add it to your boiling water. We had dinner in about 20 minutes. And it was good. A nice pantry staple to have on hand. It looks like they had many different flavors, so check out the pasta section of your store.

By the way - THANK YOU for the one-click recipes. Tomorrow we are doing Thai drunken noodles with ground pork. And I could find the recipe right away! Grazie!

I was surprised that a dry tortellini would be good - but it was. Certainly not like a perfect restaurant version, but quite good. And cheap.
