  • 2 cup spinach
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 12 ounce tortellini pasta

Serve With

  • 2 cup blackberries


  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Peel sweet potato, rinse and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Toss into hot skillet. Season with salt and pepper and cover. Stir occasionally and cook for 5-6 minutes, allowing potato to soften.
  • Remove cover and add broth. Deglaze the pan by scraping with a spatula until browned bits have been removed. Stir in spinach and allow to wilt.
  • Pour in half-and-half, cover. Bring to a simmer and then add tortellini. If frozen, cook for 10-15 minutes. If not frozen, it will only take a few minutes to fully cook tortellini.
