Dried tortellini can be found in the pasta aisle of your local grocery store. Pair this dish with a salad topped with garbanzo beans and a few veggies to round out the meal.


  • 1 bag dried three cheese tortellini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasonings
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, dice the tomatoes, mince the garlic and pull out the Italian seasonings and salt and pepper.
  3. Drain the pasta and set aside. Put the pan back on the stove.
  4. Add the olive oil to the pan and let heat for about 30 seconds. Stir in the garlic and tomatoes. Let cook for 1 minute. Add the Italian seasonings, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes until tomatoes break down into a juicier sauce.
