Bring joy back to family dinnertime with these two delicious recipes from Albertson’s.

Cheese Tortellini and Cauliflower with Creamy Spinach Marinara

Recipe courtesy of Albertsons

Total time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4

2          bags (10 ounces each) cauliflower florets

18        ounces cheese tortellini, fresh or frozen

1/2       tablespoon salt

1          jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce

8          fluid ounces heavy whipping cream

1/2       teaspoon basil, dried

1/4       teaspoon black pepper

2          packages (5 ounces each) baby spinach

Fill large pot halfway with hot water, cover and bring to boil. Uncover then add cauliflower, tortellini and salt; stir for a few seconds. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 5 minutes, or cook according to package instructions.

In separate large pot over medium heat, stir marinara sauce, cream, basil and black pepper to combine and bring sauce to simmer. Once simmering, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes.

Wash and dry spinach.

When sauce has thickened, add spinach to pot in handfuls, waiting for spinach to wilt slightly before adding next handful. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.

When cauliflower and tortellini are done, drain and add to pot with creamy marinara sauce; stir to combine.

To serve, divide pasta between plates or bowls.

Garlic-Parmesan Chicken Tenders with Green Beans and Honey Mustard Dip

Recipe courtesy of Albertsons

Total time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4

2          tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1/4       cup mayonnaise

1          teaspoon garlic powder

1          teaspoon salt, divided

2/3       cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

1/2       cup panko breadcrumbs

1/2       teaspoon paprika

1 1/2    pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 1/2    pounds green beans

1/2       cup honey mustard dressing

Preheat oven to 450 F. Coat baking sheet with 2 teaspoons oil.

Pat chicken dry with paper towels and slice into 3/4-inch tenders. Add to bowl with mayo mixture and toss to coat.

Working in batches, dredge tenders in breadcrumb coating, pressing to adhere. Transfer to baking sheet.

When chicken is golden, flip and bake until cooked through, 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven.
