Tortellini with Basil and Tomatoes


I am so excited to share this dish with you guys because I finally got to use basil from my garden!! I am still so proud of myself for keeping something alive. This dish is a wonderful summer dish. It’s light and requires minimal time in front of the hot stove. In fact, it requires minimal time cooking, period. I can’t wait to try it again with tomatoes from our garden! I have no idea if we have any cherry tomatoes growing back there, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
