Tortellini with Roasted Vegetables

Tortellini with Roasted Vegetables

Here is a great example of under 500 calorie dinner. Very easy to prepare and great on taste buds. 500 calorie dinners are part of Fitness magazine’s popular diet plan when combined with moderate exercise helps you lose weight in a healthy manner.

Tortellini pasta is anyways filling and addition of roasted vegetables adds a lot of flavor and bulk without adding too many calories.

You need:

1/2 cup boiled tortellini pasta (I used 3 cheese filling)
1/2 cup pasta sauce (about 90 calories )
3/4 cup roasted vegetables
1 tsp grated parmesan cheese
dash of Tobasco or red pepper flakes (optional)

1. Boil pasta as per package instructions
2. Add pasta sauce and heat through
3. Add roasted vegetables
4. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and red peppers flakes (if using)

You can also substitute any other pasta for cheese tortellini. If you have roasted vegetables on hand and are using store bought pasta sauce, this certainly qualifies for a quick meal.
