Amanda's Tortellini Carbonara with Italian Herbs
1 pkg tortellini of your choice (I used Buitoni Herb Chicken Tortellini with Rosemary and Garlic, Yum yum!)
1 container of Philadelphia Reduced Fat Cooking Creme in Italian Cheese and Herb
2 cups Mozzarella shredded (preferably light)
1 pkg bacon (reduced fat or turkey)
2 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
1 tsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fry up bacon and blot off any extra grease and crumble or coarsely chop. Put in a 9 x 13. Cook frozen peas and add to pan. Cook tortellini per pkg instructions and add to pan. Pour cooking creme over and mix. Add Mozzarella and mix again. Bake 15 min until melted and bubbly. Mix bread crumbs and olive oil and sprinkle over pan and return to oven for 5-10 min. Very rich and decadent, makes 10-12 servings only 8 pts. My kids gobbled it up. I was loving it. That's why I figured it couldn't possibly pass the point calculator. The scariest part was the tortellini, like 43 pts for the whole pkg. Crazy. The whole dinner was so quick and easy. And yummy. So I had to share. Even my embarrassing rolls. Want to see them?
Hilarious. There is a bible verse that says if we don't praise the Lord, even the rocks will cry out. I swear that when I took these little guys picture I could hear them humming a bit. Scary stuff.
Oh well. I am not a baker.
Anyways may help you with a quick mid-week dinner some time. Now if I can make it until bed resisting sweets...13 more days....
