Tortellini con Cannellini
This yummy recipe, Tortellini with Cannellini beans, was a classic in my house growing up. Simple to make for a family of four, my mom would whip this together many a night after a long day at work. I've brought back the recipe, & my husband is obsessed! It's become one of his favorite meals. Plus, it's a perfect meal to have with a glass of chilled white wine now that it's warming up for Spring time!
1 package of tortellini (about 8-10 oz.) - Taste Republic makes a great gluten free tortellini!
