Episode 91 - Quarantined

Share it Please
Dawson and I are home sick today, quarantined from the rest of the healthy world.  We are spending our sick day on the couch in grey sweats being sickies - big, lazy sickies.  Thank God for Neo Citran...

Creamy Sun-dried Tomato and Asparagus Tortellini

1 tbsp canola oil
Creamy deliciousness!
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup asparagus, chopped into 1-inch chunks
1/4 cup diced chorizo
1/4 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes
1 cup table cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
8-10 leaves fresh basil, minced

1 bag frozen meat tortellini

Start a pot of water boiling for the pasta.  Cook according to the package directions.

For the sauce, heat the oil in a skillet then toss in the garlic and asparagus.  When the asparagus starts to soften add in the chorizo and sun-dried tomatoes and stir until heated through.  Add the cream, cook until it reduces a little and the sauce thickens - about 2 minutes.  Right before serving, add the cheese and fresh basil.  Pour over your cooked pasta and eat!

I am sick and un-witty and have nothing else to add to this post.  If you'll excuse me, I have a date with my pillow and some chicken noodle soup.
