Today we're making an exception and using premade tortellinis. They're delicious, and dinner will be ready in just 15 minutes. The tomato sauce however is classically homemade and Italian, with garlic and oregano. Serve the dish with snack veggies. Enjoy!


1. Finely dice the onion and cook with olive oil in a small pot. Add chopped tomatoes, pressed or chopped garlic and oregano and bring the lot to the boil. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper, and let it simmer while you cook tortellinis and chop veggies.

2. Cook the tortellinis according to the packet.

3. Peel the carrots, rinse the cucumber and cut both into sticks for snack veggies.

4. Serve the tortellini in deep plates topped with tomato sauce, grated cheese and optionally some greens on top. Do avoid herb sprinkles for children younger than 3.

5. Enjoy!


You can use any type of grated cheese you prefer. But if you want it to be properly italian, go with the hard cheese, grana padano, which you can buy as triangles in most supermarkets. Or, if you really want to fancy it up, go with real authentic parmesan.
