Cheesy Spinach and Tomato Tortellini

Cheesy Spinach and Tomato Tortellini is an easy dinner idea if your nights are anything like mine have been lately.

Sometimes you come home and you want to make something that doesn’t need your whole attention. Props to those stay at home moms! Wrangling my infant while trying to cook dinner can be a challenge some nights and it’s just a matter of we’re eating out tonight! Grey is the best thing I’ve ever made, but he can seriously be a handful! This recipe is something I threw together based on stuff we had on hand. Grey was able to roll around on the floor and I could play with him and still make a delicious dinner!
