From the Cooley Kitchen

I thought it would be fun to every now and then post a recipe on our blog. Daniel has enjoyed bragging about my culinary experimentation and I thought some of you may want to try some of the recipes I have been experimenting with.

A friend of ours created a cookbook for Daniel and I as a wedding present. She compiled recipes from our families and friends. I have truly enjoyed trying these recipes out on Daniel.

One of our new favorites is Tortellini with Cherry Tomatoes and Corn.

The ingredients you will need:
1 (9oz) pkg. fresh cheese tortellini, uncooked
1 (10oz) pkg. frozen whole kernel corn
1 clove of garlic, halved
2 cups quartered cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 Tbl. grated parmesean cheese
1 tsp. olive oil
1/8 tsp. pepper

Instructions: Cook tortellini in boiling water for 3 minutes, omitting salt and fat. Add corn, and cook 3 additional minutes, drain well.
Rub the inside of a large serving bowl with garlic halves, and then discard the halves. Add tortellini mixture, tomatoes, and remaining ingredients. Toss gently to coat.

Bon Appetit!
