Do you need something easy to make, healthy and with as little mess as possible?
What's that? How did I know? Because I can totally relate.
Right now our days seem to fly by.
We have basketball practice a few times a week for the kids, I have physical therapy that some day's just kicks my booty and did I mention the never ending amount of homework they always have but some how seem to forget until it's bed time.
One Pot Tortellini with Sausage, Spinach & Artichokes is so easy to make and the dishes are minimal.
Double score! 
Leaving a little more time to make sure the kids have homework completed before bedtime or just to snuggle up to watch a movie.
Oh wait a minute I almost forgot the best part..
It's super de duper tasty! 

We headed to Safeway after Mas's basketball practice and picked up a few things we needed to make Tortellini with Sausage, Spinach and Artichokes.
Right now Safeway is having an in-store promotion $.75 off the purchase of ONE (1) package  of Barilla® Tortellini Score! Who can pass on a sale.

Add tortellini, garlic, celery, chicken stock, honey, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
Bring to a simmer, turn heat to low and simmer 15-20 minutes until pasta is tender.
Add quartered artichoke hearts and spinach. Stir well and cook for 2-3 minutes until spinach is wilted and artichokes are heated through.
Dinner is served! How easy was that?
A nice bottle of white or red wine pairs well if your having company over.
Check out those gorgeous tortellini's, little sausage meatballs and artichokes!
