This is the BEST, most decadent tasting casserole you’ll ever taste. Nobody will even believe it’s lower in fat and calories. It’s my skinny version of Olive Garden’s Chicken Tortellini Alfredo. Each serving has only 257 calories and 8 grams of fat.
1(9 oz) packagecheese tortellini, see shopping tips
1(15 oz) jarlight Alfredo sauce, see shopping tips
1½(~6 oz) cupschicken breast cooked and diced
1cupspinach leaves, chopped fine
1cupgrape or cherry tomatoes, halved
½cupreduced-fat cottage cheese, I like Knudsen’s
½cuplight mozzarella cheese, shredded
1tablespoonParmesan cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 9 X 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Cook the tortellini al dente (two minutes less than the time given on the package). Drain.
Place tortellini in a large bowl. Using a rubber spatula, carefully stir in Alfredo sauce, diced chicken, spinach, tomatoes, cottage cheese, and garlic powder until combined.
Place mixture in baking dish. Spread out to evenly distribute. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over pasta to cover. Then sprinkle Parmesan cheese all over top.
Bake 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and light golden brown on top.
Cool slightly before cutting into 6 servings. This casserole freezes great.
Shopping Tips Most supermarkets sell refrigerated packages of cheese tortellini including Trader Joe’s. They usually come in a 9-ounce package, I like Buitoni Three Cheese Tortellini, Trader Joe’s, or Rana mini cheese tortellini (½ of 20 oz pkg).You can find reduced-fat Alfredo sauce in most supermarkets in the pasta sauce aisle. Classico,Bertolli, and Prego all make one. I used Classico to calculate the skinny facts.
Note-If you can’t find light Alfredo, regular Classico Alfredo sauce is similar. It has just 15 more calories per ¼ cup and 1g more fat. So you can easily use it! Plus, Regular Classico Four Cheese Alfredo Sauce has the same calories and fat as their light version. WW Freestyle SmartPoints 7-Blue WW SmartPoints 8-Green WW Points Plus 7
