I’m back! Sun-dried Tortellini with Fresh Vegetables

After a whirlwind of a year, moving down to Florida and renovating a condo I am finally feeling settled in my new environment and have decided to start sharing my recipes again since it brings me a lot of joy! I made this sun-dried tortellini dish on Friday night and it’s what inspired me to start blogging again. Hope you enjoy 🙂


  • 1 box of your favorite tortellini (I used this and it was AMAZING)
  • 8 small assorted sweet peppers diced
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach
  • 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red chili flakes to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Herbs Paste (I LOVE this ingredient- you can buy it at almost any grocery store)



  1. Start by cooking the tortellini according to package directions.
  2. While the tortellini is cooking take a large skillet and add the olive oil and onions over medium to low heat. Let cook for about 3-5 minutes or until onions start to carmelize. Add the garlic and peppers, stir frequently and let cook for another 5-7 minutes or until it becomes tender.
  3. Add the lemon, salt and pepper, chili flakes and Italian herb paste into the pan.
  4. Once the tortellini is done, strain and add it to the other pan. Stir in the spinach until it wilts..sprinkle some fresh Parmesan cheese on if you desire-Bon Appétit!!
