So I've fallen in love with this recipe. It's easy and good. I adapted it from The Five Ingredient Vegetarian Gourmet by Nava Atlas.
1 lb frozen tortellini
3 or 4 cloves minced garlic
4 small zucchini, sliced
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
Boil the tortellini. In the meantime, saute the zucchini, garlic and red pepper flakes in 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Combine the tortellini and zucchini. Add the other tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
I strongly recommend it. In the past, I've found tortellini too dry...but the zucchini is sweet and juicy and really complements it.
In heart-warming news, my sister's boyfriend rescued a small boy cat. He took him to a shelter (he already has a few cats of his own, I think) and went to the shelter a few days later to visit. He learned that the cat has already been adopted! Here's his picture:
