Spinach & Tomato Tortellini

I have been at work for more than two weeks now, but for some reason, I still feel like I am on holiday mode. Spent three weeks travelling between the South and North Island here in NZ with the family, so its been slow getting back into it. As you probably already have noticed, I went a bit quiet on the blogging front, but trust me I am now baccccckkkkk and I've got a work night meal idea... This is great if you are still recovering from holiday mode, and don't want to do a heck lot of cooking to put a meal on the table. Absolutely minimal chopping
Enjoy this easy dinner idea ... I will try to get a relatively complicated one as the next post just to make up haha
