Tortellini Sausage Soup

Tortellini Soup4

Super fast and easy soup that packs a huge big flavor!  There is sausage, tomato paste, a bit of cream and roasted red peppers!  (I just buy a jar at the need to break out the grill).

Sheet Pan Mahi Fajitas


Sheet Pan Mahi Fajitas!  This recipe works for all kinds of fish.  Cod, Tilapia and Halibut to name a few. The recipe is basically the same as my Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas and my Salmon Sheet Pan Fajitas, but  you are going to give the veggies a 10 minute head start.  White fish cooks a bit faster than chicken or salmon.
