A Good Kid/Grown-up Conversion Meal

Michael loves cheese tortellini. What kid doesn't? He likes it with Alfredo sauce, so I buy the Light version because he doesn't know the difference.

I like tortellini, too, but I never want it with Alfredo sauce.

But it's really easy to make two different dishes from one (family-size) package of fresh white and green three cheese stuffed tortellini. You know, where the Butoni stuff is... I pick up a container of shredded Parmesan while I'm there.

He gets the plain old tortellini in light Alfredo sauce.

But I make mine into a salad. I put in some quartered marinated artichoke hearts, chopped up salami and turkey pepperoni and some halved cherry tomatoes and then drizzle the whole deal with some Garlic Parmesan Caesar dressing and finish with the shredded Parmesan. Delicious! And you could put in whatever you want. Black or green olives. Peppers. Mushrooms... whatever vegetables you have.

It's good, it's quick, it makes minimal mess, it's reasonably economical and makes us both happy.

Love that.
