5 Ingredient Creamy Mushroom Tortellini

Tortellini is combined with sautéed mushrooms and spinach and covered with a wonderful cream sauce.  Easy and fast!

I can only think of one thing better than a quick weeknight dish and that's one with only 5 INGREDIENTS!  Yes, that is what we are making for dinner tonight.  A Creamy Mushroom Tortellini dish that requires 5 ingredients to make.  And it's GOOD!

Tortellini should be a pantry staple in your house if you are wanting to make deliscious but quick meals.  It's budget friendly, everyone love it, and it cooks in a matter of minutes.  Today we aren't just going to through some marinara sauce on it, no...we are going to jazz these babies up!

I chose chicken tortellini for a little protein but you can use cheese if you like.  Add in some mushrooms, a little garlic, and some spinach doused with a cream sauce...heaven!

You can't beat these easy quick weeknight meals that come together in under 30 minutes.  Give this a try and let me know what you think.
