One bite of Tuscan Skillet will whisk you away to the sunny, green hills of Tuscany... that's how magical it tastes. Cheesy, tender tortellini soaked in a rich, bright tomato sauce with just a touch of heat and garden freshness, which you can enjoy in just about 30 minutes. This Tuscan Skillet is just the burst of summer you need to get through the worst winter has to throw at you.


Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
red pepper flakes, optional, to taste
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 (8-ounce) packages fresh cheese tortellini or 1 (19-ounce) bag frozen cheese tortellini
2 cups baby spinach, packed
parmesan cheese, freshly grated, optional, for serving
fresh basil, optional, for garnish

Directions

Step 1

In a heavy-bottomed 10-12-inch skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil until shimmering.

Step 2

Add the tomatoes, kosher salt, ground black pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Step 3

Cook until the tomatoes soften and release their juices, about 5-6 minutes.

Step 4

Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 5

Increase the heat to medium-high.

Step 6

Stir in the tortellini and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini is plump and tender, about 3-5 minutes or according to package directions.

Step 7

Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the spinach until it wilts, for about 1 minute.

Step 8

Serve with plenty of grated parmesan cheese.
