Recipe Ingredients for Tortellini with spinach and cherry tomatoes

18 oz three cheese tortellini
2 pints cherry tomatoes
9 oz baby spinach
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Tortellini with spinach and cherry tomatoes

  1. Saute garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil over medium-high heat.

  2. Add chicken broth, basil, salt, and cherry tomatoes. Add baby spinach on top, and put the lid on your pan. Cook until spinach is as wilted as you'd like it.
