If you're following my Weight Watchers journey, you know how strongly I feel about the…
This easy cheesy tortellini bake is vegetarian, but you could easily add some chicken or shrimp to up the protein and please the meat eaters in your family! It's also kid-friendly, which means two thumbs up in my house.
2 cups frozen tortellini
1 cup marinara sauce (use this recipe if you're on Weight Watchers)
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 can diced tomatoes
1/4 white onion
1.5 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic
Pepper to taste
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup lowfat Mozzarella (shredded)
Fresh basil – optional
Makes 6 servings, each serving is about 1 cup. To reduce the Smartpoints count, reduce the amount of cheese you use (where's the fun in that?).
A little over a cup is 6 Smartpoints per serving.
*Points will vary if you use full fat cheeses; these points were calculated using fat free cheese. Also, the points from the marinara recipe are included.
Serve with a salad or some fresh sauteed veggies! Don't forget about the ZERO point foods!
Saute onion, zucchini and garlic in large skillet until tender.
Add in marinara, diced tomatoes, seasonings, parmesan cheese, and tortellini then mix well.
Cook covered 8-10 minutes or until center of tortellini is soft.
Remove from heat, remove lid, and sprinkle mozzarella cheese to cover.
Bake on 400* for 15 minutes or until cheese is a bit crispy.
This easy tortellini bake is so cheesy!
