The last two weeks have been a bit of a blur thanks to being sick, traveling to NYC for a weekend of all things black culture and then having a busy week of work while still also dealing with remnants of this cold. I’m finally back in the kitchen whipping things up and on this Saturday I made a quick one pan lunch using store bought tortellini. I also used my brand new Ballarini USA non-stick pan which is amazing! This probably took me about 15 minutes total to prep and cook. What are you having for lunch?

  • 1/2 cup sliced onions
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups of chopped broccolini (including stems)
  • 1 cup of sliced Wellshire Farms pepperoni
  • 1 serving of Trader Joe’s pesto tortellini
  • 2 tablespoons of pesto
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to taste
  1. In a nonstick pan add olive oil and onions and sauté until onions are relatively soft.
  2. In a separate pot, boil water and add in one serving of the tortellini. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add in mushrooms and pepperoni and continue to sauté. Then add in the broccolini, water, and pesto. Continue to mix around all ingredients.
  4. Add in the tortellini and seasonings until thoroughly mixed together.

Done and done! A simple quick lunch filled with veggies. You can add whatever veggies you want and I used the pepperoni as a protein as I wanted to get rid of it.
