When I started this blog, I wanted to help other moms with planning and executing simple, delicious meals for their family. I know exactly what it’s like to be a working mom and to struggle with the “What’s for dinner?” question. Weeknight meals can be the hardest. After early mornings, racing to get to school/day care/work, getting kids to sports practice, I was just too exhausted to make dinner by Tuesday night! I had a pantry and fridge full of food, but nothing that was quick and easy to get on the table.

I decided to build up my arsenal of go-to recipes to make dinners more efficient. Recipes with a few ingredients, that I could easily remember and could get on the table in about 30 minutes. This one-pot creamy meatball tortellini is one of those recipes! And my picky kids didn’t even notice the spinach.
