Sunday was a great day here in Va. It was a balmy 73 degrees. The Sun was shining. We spent the day outside just soaking it all in, with good reason.

Monday morning brought us 5 inches of snow, literally dumped on us in just a few short hours. It was 8 degrees last night. 8! Baby, it’s cold outside!

But today the Sons and I are staying warm with this cozy tortellini for lunch.

It’s quick, easy, and oh-so creamy. And cheesy. We can’t forget the cheese. It’s basically one of the most perfect things to serve on a Snow Day.

We’re making sure to get in some of our Winter favorites now, since Spring, believe it or not, is right around the corner. Stay warm and enjoy this last bit of Winter. Good hot food, and steaming mug of hot chocolate will help.

Just remember, while you may  find yourself, like me, complaining about the cold now and are so excited for Spring’s arrival, that it will only be a few more months and we will all be griping again. This time about, and trying to find a way to beat, the Summer heat.

  1. 73 does sound lovely right now! Mother nature has us on another roller coaster this year, and this looks like a perfect dinner for those cold evenings. Happy Throwback Thursday to you! 😉

  2. Hi i Really souls like to tyr Theis recipe.. but I’m from Denmark.. how does this Italian dressing looks like.. and how does this 1 can cream of chicken soup looks like or what is it.. 🙈

    1. It is sold near the salad dressings, in packets. It’s a dry mix in packets to mix up your own. The cream of soup is in the soup aisle and it’s a condensed soup. Hope that helps!

  3. “Fettuccine alfredo are not a thing in Italy,”
    In the US it has become a staple in many restaurants that brand themselves Italian.
    In Italy, the dish is most similar to what Italians call pasta burro e parmiggiano (pasta with butter and parmesan cheese).
    in Italy, this way of making pasta is often referred to as pasta del cornuto – which translates as “cuckold’s pasta”
    The even more popular way of serving pasta alfredo in the US – with chicken – is beyond imaginable.
    It is not just poultry and pasta that are not allowed to mix – meat and pasta very rarely make it on to the same plate. Pasta is one course (primo) and meat is another, fully separate course (secondo).

  4. 5 stars
