Veggie Tortellini Salad with Browned Butter

Tortellini Salad

Date: July 16, 2013


Modifications:  Used frozen corn and peas, and did put them in boiling water just for a bit. Also used the big bag of frozen cheese tortellini from Whole Foods.

Time to table: 30 minutes. The most prep is slicing the tomatoes.

Servings: 5 adults

Erin: Love

Ben: Like

Annie: Like

Luke: Dislike (as in, gagged)

Notes: We knew that neither child would be particularly enthused by this. I don’t really get it, but neither of them seem to like any tortellini dish we’ve made. They are weird, because they like cheese, and pasta. Luke tried it but literally gagged. Whatever. To make for a more pleasant mealtime, I just gave them each a half piece of peanut butter toast with their meal so as to not listen to their whining. They were still offered the pasta but Annie had to be cajoled to try a few bites (which she ate fine, hence the “like”). They are weird because I thought this was really good, and Ben liked it a lot too. Leftovers weren’t as good because the sauce got a little iffy but still tasty for 2 additional days.
