Three-Cheese Tortellini with Pesto

A meal with four ingredients that only takes ten minutes? Count me in!

Three-Cheese Tortellini with Pesto
Prep: 2 min. ~ Cook: 8 min. ~ Total: 10 min. ~ Serves: 2-3

1 9oz. package of three-cheese Tortellini (I use Buitoni brand, buy 20oz. package for more servings)
3 Tbsp basil pesto sauce
7 cherry tomatoes, halved
Fresh mozzarella cheese, crumbled, for garnish

Fill pot with water and bring to a boil. You may add a teaspoon of olive oil to prevent pasta from sticking.

Add tortellini. Cook tortellini according to package directions (usually boil gently for 7-8 minutes).

Remove from heat and drain pasta. Place pasta in a bowl.

Add pesto and stir to coat.

Add tomatoes and mix together. Top with fresh mozzarella cheese.
