EASY CHEESY TORTELLINI

THE STORY BEHIND THE FOOD 

The time I was working at the library, I also had to study for my bachelor's degree, attend classes at the university and had almost daily rehearsals for our concerts with my band. Clearly the last thing I wanted to do was cooking! Who want's to go to a store full of people, after such a day, spending two hours at a place, to buy a bag that should have taken twenty minutes to get? Obviously nobody! It had to be somethhing quick! Something easy!  This is how the three ingredient (Tortellini, Mozzarella & Beans) recipe was made for the very first time.  

So, if this situation fits you, and you had a long day at work, picked up your kids on your way home and forgot there was nothing in the fridge to eat, this easy cheesy tortellini recipe will be perfect for you!
