Tortellini with Italian Sausage and Fresh Vegetables

Tortellini with Italian Sausage and Fresh Vegetables

A very good friend of mine requested a while back for a recipe that could be done in about 30 minutes. Understandably, as she is not only an Army wife to a special forces soldier, a mother of a daughter with a baby boy on the way, as well as a full time soldier herself with multiple deployments under her belt. She’s a busy woman. In addition, she’s probably one of the most selfless people I know, helping out friends and soldiers alike whenever they are in need. This one is for her.

Trying to come up with an under 30 minute recipe isn’t very easy, however. Many are familiar with the concept of cooking a quick dinner thanks to Rachel Ray’s tv show, as well as the plethora of quick and easy recipes from big food companies such as Kraft and Campbell’s. In either case, most of these meals are prepared from pre-made foods, which are typically processed and/or have funky ingredients in them. I try to keep things as from-scratch as I can when cooking.

It has been yet another busy week, and Laura has been doing most of the cooking. In fact, the only new item I have to share of my own doing is today’s recipe.

Fortunately, though, Laura has been putting together some pretty damn tasty meals and she’s been taking pictures as she goes, so I’ll still be able to share those in days to come!

A few weekends ago, we had some good friends over for dinner. I knew they were a little adventurous in their tastes and were open to me putting together any kind of menu, so I decided on an Italian-Hawaiian fusion three course dinner. However, the only course I ended up documenting was the appetizer, which was more Italian influenced than anything else. Read the rest of this entry »
