Zucchini Tortellini


Although we like to pride ourselves on whipping up innovative, difficult dishes that require alot of effort, hectic schedules don’t always allow for that.  We still like to keep our meals as healthy as possible though, so this simple dish only takes minutes to prepare and is surprisingly delicious!


3 zucchini, sliced thin

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 cayenne pepper, minced

1 12 oz bag, tri-color cheese tortellini

salt & pepper to taste

olive oil for frying

  • Cook tortellini according to package (generally boil for 18-20 minutes)
  • Cook zucchini, garlic and cayenne (adding salt & pepper), in a frying pan with a few tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat, until zucchini is beginning to brown (approximately 7 or 8 minutes)
  • Combine zucchini mix and tortellini and that’s it!
