mmmMonday

There has been a lot of this happening... which means not a lot of cooking is going down over here.
Only fast, easy meals are on the menu for the next couple of weeks while we transition over to our new apartment.  
This is one of those meals. As an added bonus it includes cheese tortellini, and at only 331 calories for an entire bowl, you don't have to feel guilty about it!

Spinach and Cheese Tortellini

Ingredients
1 cup of fresh, frozen cheese tortellini (I find mine at Kroger)
3 cups fresh organic baby spinach
1/2 cup low sodium tomato sauce

Directions
Bring 1 quart of water to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, saute fresh spinach in a medium pan (without oil) for 2-3 minutes until wilted. Add pepper to taste (I don't add salt here because it is already in the tomato sauce). Cook tortellini in boiling water for 2 minutes, or longer according to your package directions. Drain tortellini and stir in 1/2 cup of tomato sauce. Add sauteed spinach and serve.

Seriously, we're talking only 5 minutes here. It's. so. easy!
