Leftovers for Lunch: Two Ways with Tortellini

Tortellini from last night’s dinner translates into some yummy lunches today. For the kiddos, I tossed the tortellini in a little olive oil with some grated parmesan. Tortellini always seems really filling to me, so I just gave the kids a small serving of the pasta. I also packed lots of fruit (pineapple, persimmon, and grapes), a baby carrot, and some peanut butter filled pretzels.

I tossed the tortellini with some kale, shredded carrots, diced salami and balsamic vinaigrette to make a delicious¬†and filling salad. Just call me master of leftovers. And, yes, I’m loving my EasyLunchboxes.
