I’ve been waiting to try the Kitehill vegan tortellini for ages, and I finally ordered them from Whole Foods last week as a quick dinner idea. They’re stuffed with almond milk ricotta and we’re really close to traditional tortellini. Same texture and very similar flavor. We had some vegan sausage from the cookout the night before so I sliced those up and sautéed them with sliced mushrooms and spinach. Then I added Rao’s marinara sauce and made my own cashew cream to make a creamy pink sauce. It came together in under 20 minutes and was such a comforting, filling meal. I think we all need that lately! I topped with Violife vegan parm.
