Looking for an easy Weight Watchers friendly vegetarian pasta recipe? I hope you’ll give this Easy Cheese Tortellini with Broccoli and Red Peppers a try. It’s adapted from a recipe in Vegetarian Classics: 300 Essential and Easy Recipes for Every Meal by Jeanne Lemlin, a Massachusetts based vegetarian cookbook writer and cooking instructor, who described it as a staple in her house because it is quick, tasty and uses just a few simple ingredients that are unsually in her refrigerator.
Her recipe as written calls for frozen ravioli, but I prefer fresh tortellini so used it instead. I also added some thinly sliced mushrooms that were sitting around in the fridge.
I enjoyed it for dinner one night and the leftovers for lunch the next day. This is an easy, healthy and delicious vegetarian pasta recipe that’s going in my regular rotation.
