“I indulge my weakness for Fettuccine Alfredo with this trimmer tortellini. It has the same rich flavor without the heaviness,” says Mitzi Sentiff, Annapolis, Maryland. Nutmeg adds a lovely accent to the sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 3/4 pound fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 envelope Alfredo sauce mix
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-fat butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Cook tortellini according to package directions, adding broccoli during the last few minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk the sauce mix and milk. Add butter and nutmeg; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Drain tortellini and broccoli; place in a large bowl. Stir in the Alfredo sauce, Parmesan cheese and pepper.
