Cold Lemony Tortellini with Tomatoes and Artichoke Hearts

Another delicious, light, refreshing, healthy, and easy summer weeknight dinner recipe!  I love, love, love this entree!

Serves 2


1 package whole wheat cheese tortellini
1/4 Cup chopped green onions
1/2 Cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 Can artichoke hearts
4 Tbsp olive oil
Splash of white wine
Juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove, crushed
Crushed black pepper & salt, to taste
Fresh grated parmesan cheese, to sprinkle on top

Mix all ingredients together, let marinate in the refrigerator at least an hour.  Serve cold.

Berry Yogurt Bake

This is a really quick, easy, and yummy summer dessert - not too sweet or heavy.

Serves 4

4 Eggs, beaten
3 Tbsp honey
1 Cup (8 oz) Greek yogurt (I used non-fat)
1 Tsp vanilla
3 Tsp cornstarch
1 Cup mixed raspberries and blueberries
Confectioners sugar, to dust

Preheat oven to 325.  Place eggs, honey, yogurt, vanilla and cornstarch in a bowl, then whisk together until smooth.  Place half the berries in the base of a 9" bakin dish and top with the honey and yogurt mixture.  Sprinkle the remaining berries over top, then bake for 20 mins.  Dush with confectioners sugar.
