Loaded with veggies and a nice alfredo-ish sauce--it's hard to believe this one is light! I'm sure you can swap veggies for whatever you have on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil, then add tortellini and veggies. Stir to keep from sticking and boil about 10 minutes (according to package directions).
  2. In a small saucepan combine broth, milk, and butter over med-high heat until butter melts, then add alfredo sauce mix.
  3. Whisk to dissolve powder, then cook over medium for five minutes.
  4. Add parmesan and whisk again for twenty seconds.
  5. Drain tortellini and veggies then place back in pan. Pour on the sauce and voila!

I enjoyed this and it went together easily. I used fresh veggies, adding slivers of red bell pepper, & used Knorr alfredo mix. Served with a grenn salad it made a filling meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT7.

5 stars for sure!!! This was an easy 7 WW point dinner for us and I even used regular butter and a 12 ounce package of cheese tortellini! What a great meal! I have never used the powdered alfredo mix, but I would use it to make this again. We had this with some fresh French bread to sop up the sauce. Made for 1, 2, 3 Tag. Thanks smellyvegetarian! :)

5 Stars, loved this dish, hard to believe it is "light", this has a full taste. I would add more vegetables next time, then DH and I won't fight as much over our portions. I considered sprinkling some red pepper flakes, but the first time I make a recipe, I like to follow the directions. A great weeknight meal! Thanks for posting, smellyvegetarian! Made for Went to the Market tag.
