Tortellini Salad

I'm so proud of myself tonight. I made up a new meal (sort of)! I was inspired by this recipe, but changed it up a bit to my own liking and, well, it came out unbelievably good. It's just the thing I would serve at a baby shower because it was really pretty (picture may not do justice) and was just that good.

I served it with ciabatta bread and applesauce.

1 package fresh cheese tortellini (Trader Joe's)
3 cans chicken broth
1 chicken breast, grilled and chopped in bite size pieces
1/2 cup pine nuts
2-3 large tomatoes chopped
3 cups fresh spinach, steamed and chopped (I bought Trader Joes organic spinach leaves in the bag)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar dressing
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Boil tortellini in chicken broth (a tip from my friend Staci to make chicken dishes extra savory). Meanwhile grill chicken (or could be boiled just as easily). Once both are finished, toss in a bowl with pine nuts, chopped tomatoes, spinach and toss with balsamic vinegar. Top with Parmesan cheese.

*A plus is that I made it all by 10 am. I'm sure it's pretty good warm too, but it was very tasty as a cool pasta salad.

Aside from the obvious difficulties of pitching so brilliantly in such a
high pressure situation, Larsen's feat is even more impressive when one considers that the Dodgers had four future Hall of Famers in their lineup: Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Pee Wee Reese. For the purposes of this game, a "set" is at least three cards of equal value such as three Jacks or three fours and a "sequence" is made up of at least four cards that are of the same suit and run sequentially such as three, four, five, and six of spades.
