Tortellini With Light Alfredo Sauce

Tortellini With Light Alfredo Sauce created by Nif_H

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.

    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.
