Tortellini with Tomato-Basil Sauce

Serve with a low-fat Caesar salad and breadsticks

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 14-ounce c whole tomatoes, coarsely chopped, juice reserved
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 12 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Put a large pot of salted water on to boil.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until well browned, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and their juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cook tortellini until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with tomato sauce and basil. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, passing the Parmesan.
