Tortellini Pizza Bake



So far this week I'm all about simple dinners with minimal prep. I just got to the grocery store this afternoon and I realized that my original meal wasn't going to be ready in time for tonight's dinner. I decided on this Tortellini Pizza Bake instead. So easy and so delicious. I made mine with spinach tortellini. If you have kiddos then this is a great way to incorporate some veggies into the meal. It was a hit with the family.

Tortellini Pizza Bake
Serves 6
WW PP=10
Cal 401, Carbs 50.1, Fat 12.6, Fiber 6, Protein 22.8

Ingredients
1 pkg refrigerated tortellini (I like Buitoni Spinach and Cheese)
1 jar pasta sauce (I used Barilla Arrabbiata-we like it spicy!)
1 1/4 cups reduced fat mozzarella cheese
1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 oz. sliced pepperoni
1 tsp. garlic powder
any other additional toppings of your choice (I used olives)

Cook tortellini to al dente. Drain and set aside.

Spread a small amount of pasta sauce in the bottom of a casserole dish. Evenly spread half of the cooked tortellini along the bottom of the dish. Spread half of the pasta sauce on top of the tortellini and evenly sprinkle on half the Parmesan cheese. Top with some of the pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Repeat.

Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly. Enjoy!
