Creamy Mozzarella Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Spinach Tortellini 

Well that is certainly a mouthful. And it’s a delicious mouthful. Pinterest has done it again, bringing up amazing and beautiful looking recipes from bloggers like Julia’s Album. The vibrant warm colors are what initially drew me in to click on the link for this recipe and once I read the post in its entirety I knew I had to make this dish. 

Being Italian, it’s hard to not want to cook Italian…I mean they do know what they’re doing when it comes to food. This recipe is no different, the creaminess of the base mixed with the sharp cheeses of tortellini and the acidity of sun-dried tomatoes is harmonious. 

I didn’t have paprika like the recipe calls for, but add a dash of chili powder and you’ll get the same effect and taste paprika would have given it. It was a nice addition, kudos to Julia. 

It’s an easy recipe and certainly one the whole family will enjoy, so get your pot of water boiling and pan sizzling and have Italian night in your home.

Tomato Basil Artichoke Baked Chicken

As my followers have probably gathered by now, I do a lot of baking and dessert recipes. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy cooking savory dishes, though! I made this over the weekend and already a few people have asked me for the recipe. It’s super easy and super yummy! I salted the chicken before baking them those initial 15 minutes and I kind of wish I didn’t. The artichokes added some saltiness and having the Parmesan in the mixture lended to not really needing any salt. I baked the whole dish for 17 minutes and then broiled it for 3 minutes. I think the chicken came out cooked perfectly and it was plenty moist and juicy. Broiling it at the end helped gave the mozzarella that bake on the top as you see in the photos. This is certainly a keeper and such a great dish to make for family and friends! Happy Cooking!
