While Travis, hopefully, slept away some of his sickness, I made sausage tortellini soup for dinner. A warm bowl of hearty goodness always seems to do the trick (along with lots of rest).
Here's the soup recipe, if you're interested:
1 lb. sweet Italian sausage (casings removed)
2 (10 oz.) cans French onion soup
2 cans stewed tomaotes
2 c. coleslaw mix or coarsely shredded cabbage
2 c. uncooked tortellini
1-2 c. water
1 tsp. crushed basil
Parmesan cheese for garnish
In a large pot, brown sausage - don't toss the drippings, they make for great flavor. Add rest of ingredients. Let simmer until tortellini is tender (about 15 minutes). Ladle into bowls, top with cheese. Enjoy!
This recipe is really easy and has great flavor. This time around I used Buitoni's chicken and prosciutto tortellini - and they were excellent. (If you can find them in your refrigerated pasta section at your grocery store, I highly suggest trying them!)
After falling asleep on the sofa a little while after dinner and getting a better night's rest, Travis is feeling much better this morning. Thank goodness! I woke up this morning to make our favorite chocolate & cheese Danishes (click for the recipe) for breakfast. Yes, 2 Saturdays in a row - they are that good! Plus, I wanted to use up my marscapone cheese before it went bad. They turned out just as tasty as the last time I made them. Seconds? Yes, please.
