I try really hard to eat a low carb diet. Key word being “try”. But sometimes a girl just needs her pasta! Am I right?! Fill that pasta with cheese and I’m in heaven. This is a really easy, cheap, weeknight dinner that the boys just love. I brown one pound of hamburger meat, drain and return to the pan. Add diced tomatoes (get the onion & garlic flavored kind and you can save the time it would take to sauté the garlic & onion yourself), alfredo sauce, and tomato sauce. Let simmer for about fifteen minutes. While the sauce is simmering, bring a pot of water to boil and add your cheese filled tortellini. Cook per package instructions, drain, add to the sauce and you’re done. My family likes to top it with way too much parmesan cheese. But seriously, is there such a thing as too much cheese? Not really.
(Hamburger not pictured)
1 lb hamburger meat
1 cup alfredo sauce
1 can diced tomatoes (I like the garlic/onion flavor)
1 can tomato sauce
20 oz package of cheese filled tortellini (in the dairy section)
The sauce is kind of tricky. I like it to be a nice pink color. Just add the ingredients slowly. If your sauce is too red, add more alfredo. If it’s too white, add more tomato sauce. The end result will look something like this…
