Creamy Tortellini with Sweet Potato and Spinach


One-pot pasta recipes have been making their way into our kitchens with increasing regularity over the past few years, and with good reason — it seems like such a small thing, but nixing that big pot of boiling water somehow seems to make weeknight dinners that much easier.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 3/4 to 1 pound), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 (5-ounce) bag baby spinach or 1 large bunch spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag frozen cheese tortellini

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed 10- or 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the sweet potato cubes, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cover the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are just starting to soften.
  3. Uncover the skillet and add the broth, scraping the bottom of the pan with a spatula to dissolve the browned bits. Add the spinach in handfuls, stirring until it wilts down, before adding more.
