Shopping Tips
I use Buitoni’s three-cheese tortellini or Trader Joe’s cheese tortellini. Most supermarkets carry a few other brands, It’s usually displayed in the refrigerated section where other fresh pasta and sauces are displayed.
Hormel’s 70% reduced-fat turkey pepperoni can be found in most larger supermarkets in the luncheon meat section. So low in calories and fat, it’s a real find!
