This Tortellini Casserole is so good….and easy!
It’s the perfect dinner for those crazy weeknights when you’re short on time.
The first thing I did to save time was buy a cooked rotisserie chicken. It’s such an easy way to save time!
I only used the chicken breasts which I chopped up. My kids will usually eat the legs and I give some of the thighs to my cat, so it doesn’t go to waste.
Fresh broccoli sounded good in this so I used 2 cups. I saved time by cooking the broccoli in with the tortellini. I waited until there was only 1 minute of cook time left then added the broccoli.
Not only did that save time, it was also one less dish I had to clean. 🙂
I bought pre-made Alfredo sauce as another way to save time. This is the one I used:
One cup of the sauce was 8 points. I checked regular “Alfredo sauce” on the app and it came up as 28 points for 1 cup. Yikes!
Once I drained the tortellini and broccoli I added the Alfredo sauce to the sauce pan and stirred in the chicken, tortellini and broccoli.
You can add it to a 9″ baking dish or a small casserole dish. First I sprayed the dish with no-stick cooking spray, then added the tortellini mixture.
I added 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese to the top then popped it in the oven until the cheese melted, about 15 minutes.
That’s it! So easy and delicious.
