One Pot Chicken Tortellini

I love this recipe, mostly because it was my first Twitch stream.

I had so much fun doing that stream, even though I was so nervous before, during, and after, but people really seemed to enjoy it.  

I set it up to where you mostly see the cooking and not me, I think that really helped.

I am definitely going to be streaming regularly from now on.  I think that it will really help my traffic here.  I mean, who doesn’t want to see their recipes live cooked.  It means that I actually made what I am saying that I am making.

Trust.

That’s what it is, trust.

I made chicken tortellini, as requested by a friend of mine who is also a streamer.  Shout out to Alien8thebunny, if you’re on twitch or like live streams go check him out!

I love tortellini because it feels like you’re getting more than just regular pasta.  Most of the time they’re stuffed with something delicious.

I happened to get the spinach stuffed tortellini so that Braedon would actually eat his veggies.

I also made this recipe one pot, because I wanted something easy not only for myself but for each one of you who doesn’t quite have enough time to make something delicious every night.

I added in grape tomatoes and spinach to give it a little more oomph and make it more balanced than a regular alfredo would be.

This was one of my favorite recipes that I have made so far.

The flavor is amazing, it’s quick to make, and pretty to look at.

Braedon has been refusing most vegetables lately, I have had to find ways to sneak it into his diet.  

Do you have a good way of doing this?

I feel like even with sneaking it into his diet, he’s not getting what he should be getting.

Or maybe I’m just a worried mama.

I’m excited that it’s a new week and that I will be doing more streams this week.  I am finally getting back to myself.

Depression is really no joke, hopefully, it will stay away for a while.

You should check out my twitch stream for a new recipe on Tuesday and while you’re at it visit me on Twitter and Instagram!
