J: So, we have been terribly negligent all summer. You’d think that summer would be a good time for regular posting — but we’ve moved, done some much-needed traveling/”vacationing” (but not really), and otherwise been pretty occupied with grad school and work, so unfortunately the blog has kind of fallen by the wayside. While we struggle to get a real post up (our next country will be up soon!), this post is just some shameless laziness on our part to remind everyone, including ourselves, that we still exist. Take one of our favorite things (pizza), add another one of our favorite things (pasta), and voila, you have a post with two images. Need some more instruction on how to make pizza (because no, you are not getting off the hook with storebought dough)? Try one of our other pizza posts (here, here, here!).
So, this is pretty much the simplest thing ever, but it is also one of the most delicious things ever.
Dough for one normal-sized pizza
Your choice of a sauce — we used straight-up pesto, spread thinly
Some veggies, diced up, to make yourself feel a little better about eating ALL of the carbs. We recommend red onion and bell peppers!
Tortellini. We used a package of storebought (roughly 8oz, I think), because we are too lazy to actually make legit tortellini, at least when we intend to use it to top a pizza.
Cheese, again of your choice — I believe we used parmesan. You don’t need a whole lot.
Preheat your oven to 500F. Cook the tortellini according to the package directions (gosh, I didn’t think we’d ever say that phrase on this blog!).
Assemble your pizza — sauce, then veggies, then cooked tortellini, then sprinkle the cheese over top. Slide into the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, until the crust is cooked through and the cheese has browned a bit. Serve up and enjoy!
