This is the other recipe I made for the Weight Watchers Open House on February 27th. These were amazing! They’re not as pretty as they were originally because I fell and dropped them in the parking lot on the way home, but they still look alright.
The cream is made from strawberry low fat yogurt and Cool Whip. Awesome!

This was really good. I’m a sucker for cream sauces and this was no exception. It was really thick and I probably should have thickened the sauce a little bit slower, but in the end it turned out really well and we both enjoyed it.
Cheese Tortellini with Ham and Peas in Creamy Sauce
Makes 4 servings – 6 WW Points each
1/2 pound refrigerated fresh cheese tortellini
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 pound deli-sliced ham, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook according to package directions. Stir in the peas during the last 2 minutes of cooking, drain.
Meanwhile, coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. Add the ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Remove and reserve the ham. Dissolve the flour in the milk in a small bowl and add to the skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese and pepper. Add the ham, tortellini and peas and toss to coat.
