Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Tortellini Primavera | No Thanks to Cake

There's something special about this meal when you load it up with all the fresh veggies. Diced asparagus, sauteed spinach, and fresh tomatoes are what I use to brighten up today's dish; however, feel free to use whichever fresh vegetables you have in your refrigerator right now!


  • 1 pkg. Three Cheese Tortellini with Chicken
  • 4 spears asparagus, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 Tbsp. sweet onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • cooking spray
  • crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • 3 grape tomatoes, sliced (for garnish)


  • Cook your tortellini in the microwave per the packaging instructions. Set aside.
  • Prepare a skillet with cooking spray, and saute your onion, garlic, spinach, and asparagus until your spinach is wilted (about 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently). Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Add your tortellini to the skillet, and stir to combine the vegetables with the pasta and sauce.
  • Move to serving bowl, top with crushed red pepper + sliced grape tomatoes for garnish.
  • Serve and enjoy!
