This was heaven in my mouth! The creamy cheeses, and all the veggie goodness was just beyond amazing! Let me get to the recipe.
What you'll need:
1 package cheese tortellini (any brand)
1 Jar Alfredo
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 can artichoke hearts, chopped
1 Roma tomato, diced
1/2 cup baby spinach, chopped
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder, (or you can use 1 clove garlic, chopped)
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In large pot, boil tortellini as instructed on package.
In large sauce pan on medium heat, add EVOO and red pepper flakes. Once heated, add diced onions and mushrooms to sauce pan. Saute for 5 minutes or until onions are semi clear. Add artichoke hearts, spinach. Saute until spinach leaves wilt (about 5 minutes). Next, add the jar of Alfredo and turn heat down to simmer. Make sure to stir frequently to avoid the Alfredo from burning. Simmer 10 minutes.
Drain tortellini and then plate, topping with Alfredo sauce!
This makes about 4 servings, with servings being 1/2 cup tortellini and 1 cup Alfredo mixture. Roughly 500 calories per serving.
Y'all, when I threw all of these things together, I did not think it would taste this good! I knew I had to write it down, and why not share it?
As I mentioned, I will be completely changing my diet and whole life, really. So, this means that I will be sharing all of my new recipes and snacks! I have enrolled my bestie into doing the My Fitness Pal with me, and I will be sharing my progress!
