Tortellini w/ Tomato Cream Sauce

On the weekends, I typically don’t like to cook dinners that take a long time to prep. I want to make the meals that are quick to the table, kid friendly, and allow me to enjoy most of the day, instead of prepping in the kitchen! When I made this for dinner last weekend, the entire family LOVED it and everyone ate seconds! Not only did it take no work to make, but the flavor was great! Paired with some veggies and our Garlic Parmesan Knots, this dinner was a success!!!

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 package (10 oz) chopped spinach, thaw it out and squeeze out excess liquid
