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.

Easy Cheesy Tortellini Bake

Easy Tortellini Bake

Ingredients:

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!
