Creamy Lemon Tortellini

Creamy Lemon Tortellini

This is 20 days of 20 minutes dinners on a budget. We are up to day 2 and today brings you this one pan, delicious, creamy lemon tortellini recipe.

My favourite meals are those that are fast, achievable and that are made with simple ingredients that I already have most of in my pantry. This recipe requires very minimal prep and clean up which is so great for when when I don’t particularly feel like cooking! It’s well under $5 per serve and you can freeze leftovers for a rainy day so there’s no waste. Save this one for when you next need some dinner inspo, you’ll love it!
