So there was no blog post published on 1 Week Mary yesterday, as I’d planned to get it up between 11-12, but I just wasn’t in a state to blog so that means one of these days you’ll get 2 up in 1 day In Shaa Allah, just to make up for it. Now, on with this post!
I first started eating this whilst I was at uni. Sainsbury’s was literally 2 minutes away & I guess this was just an easy meal to make. So what is ‘this’, I hear you ask? I’ll tell you now: Sainsbury’s spinach & ricotta tortellini is the one. The reason why I say Sainsbury’s specifically is because I’ve only ever had there’s. That’s because the one from Asda/Tesco etc says it’s not suitable for Celery, Fish, Crustacean and Mollusc allergy sufferers. Crustaceans and Molluscs aren’t considered Halal (I know there’s a difference of opinion) but I tend to stay away from them for this reason. The one from Sainsbury’s is Suitable For Vegetarians so it’s a yes from meeee.
It tastes delicious man. I’ve always liked pasta, I’ve always liked cheese so one day when I was hungry I guess I just picked it up (amazing back story, I know). And it’s been downhill ever since. Lol. Jokes. But I would say it’s not good to have it very regularly, because it’s essentially very fat. Like very, very fat and unhealthy.
So here’s the ‘recipe’ (basically how I make it…that is a recipe isn’t it – alright pretend this never happened pls). I put some water in a saucepan on to boil. I then put the pasta in (before the water has boiled). I tend to just put the pasta in once I’ve put the water on, or you can leave it for a couple of minutes – let’s be honest, there’s no science to it. You put the pasta in boiling water and let it simmer for a few minutes. Then you drain it. And that’s basically it. You can tell when the pasta’s cooked and it took me less than 10 minutes to make.
It’s just so fat, like the point of eating it isn’t to get any nutritional value whatsoever, but is to have something fatty to munch on. And enjoy, of course. It’s so much better when it’s hotter/warm because it’s soft and mushy. When it’s cold it can become very rubbery. But it is literally one of my most favourite meals ever. It tastes amazing man Ma Shaa Allah.
And that’s basically it! I literally eat it like that, I don’t add any sauce or anything, once the water’s been drained, it’s just good to gooo. And it’s delicious man. The only sad thing is I practically inhale it so it’s gone in no time. And then I miss it straight away…I wish I could say you feel better after eating it, but I know I definitely don’t. I just always end up wishing I had more tbh.
Thank you for reading! Have you ever had Sainsbury’s Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini before? Did you love it as much as I do?
