A delicious, easy and quick pasta dish that is perfect to put together on a weekday dinner. You will love the combination of garlic, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and mozzarella. Only made in 20 minutes!
YOU NEED: 4 port.
350 gram tortellini with cheese
olive oil and salt (add it to the water when you cook the pasta).
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 dl sun dried tomatoes in oil in a jar, drained from oil (cut in pieces)
3 garlic cloves, sliced thin
A half bag with fresh spinach
4 dl half and half (cream and milk)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika pulver
125 gram standard ball of fresh mozzarella
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
grated parmesan cheese, to serving
Cook the tortellini according to package, drain and set a side.
Heat sun-dried tomatoes and 1 tbsp of oil in a large skillet on medium heat, add the sliced garlic and cook for about a minute. Add fresh spinach and continue cooking and stirring on medium heat until spinach just starts to soften.
Add half and half, salt, paprika and bring to boil and then reduce to simmer.
Add the fresh basil and the cooked tortellini. Mix to coat and warm on medium low heat and then add the mozzarella cheese in pieces. Stir so it starts to melt a bit.
A perfect weekday dish, easy to prepare and yes it’s good! This is a typical Swedish dish “Pytt i panna”, it literally means mixed food in small pieces, as you can see. It’s quick to prepare, specially if you have some left overs of potatoes (boiled) or some protein. Just add some chopped onions, salt and pepper and that’s it!
This time I made a “Pytt i panna” with a bbq sausage and a very yummy horseradish cream.
YOU NEED: 4 port.
Pytt i panna
500 g sausage
600 grams of cooked cold potatoes
salt and pepper
butter for frying
Yesterday we had a real kind of girls day. We started the day with some gym and then some relaxing spa time, so nice! At the evening we went to my place and I had made dinner to us all, never cooked for so many before at the same time but everything went very well and the girls loved the food, so that was perfect!! I served a creamy potato gratin with a super tender beef filé and red wine sauce, topped with bacon and asparagus. For dessert I made a chocolate cake topped with chocolate mousse, so yummy!
Here are pictures from our trip in Koh Lipe, my favorite Island so far. We enjoyed a whole week here, so beautiful, such a paradise!
We stayed at Mali Resort at Sunrise beach. They have two resorts, one at Pattaya beach which is the main beach in Lipe and one on Sunrise beach which is the most beautiful and peaceful one. Everything was so great and the bungalow we stayed in was just next to the beach and it was perfect and so cosy! Could have stayed there for ever.
Everything was walking distans as it’s such a small Island. We actually went to another Island just to explore a bit and it was just next to Koh Lipe, it’s called Ko Adang, we took a kayak and we thought it wasn’t that far but half way there we really felt it in our arms haha. But so much fun. No one was there, a whole beach by yourself, so peaceful.
We also went on a snorkling tour with a private boat and we could just decide when and where we wanted to go and that was so much better then going in a group. As then you would have people around you all the time.
We had a perfect trip here, will definitely come back again and also to visit our new friends we made at Mali Resort. <3
