I’m not going to say Day 1 without candy was easy, because it wasn’t. But I’m taking it one day at a time, like any 12 step program. I need to send a shout out to my mother for the delicious and easy dinner I made tonight. Anyone can make this recipe (and should make this recipe). Not to mention it could feed a family of 5. Cha-ching: leftovers.
4 cups less-sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
dash –or 2- of crushed red pepper flakes
9 oz package 3-cheese tortellini
1 cup diced roast chicken (I bought a roasted chicken to save time)
1 14 oz can artichoke hearts, quartered
1 6 oz package fresh baby spinach
Combine first six ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil and add tortellini. Cook until just tender, then add remaining ingredients (except yogurt). Serve with a scoop of plain yogurt on top.
A side of beer and bread compliment it nicely.
Spicy, lemony, YUM.
