Since I began the hard-core real food traditional lifestyle, I pretty much make everything from scratch. I just feel like pre-made prepared and ready-to-eat foods are too iffy for me to eat on a regular basis. I mostly stay away from restaurants and foods that are packaged.
Unfortunately, that means cooking takes a little longer than it used to. Fortunately, I like a challenge and I like to cook, but I do still live in the 21st century. I’m busy. I have a kid. I work. I can’t hang out in the kitchen all day, every day. So I am thankful for some easy, safe go-to foods that I can either make in advance or buy to use when I need something quick.
I figured quick and made at home is usually better than eating out, both economically and for my health. One thing I don’t make from scratch is pasta. I don’t eat it very often anyway, so when I want it, I just buy the best quality pre-made refrigerated pasta I can get: tortellini, ravioli or whatever strikes my fancy.
This quick, simple tortellini soup with veggies is one of my favorite go-to meals when I’m in a hurry and don’t have anything else ready (just finished the leftovers!) The tortellini can also be subbed for ravioli or whatever other pasta you like.
