Healthy Eat Week, Day 2

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Okay today is Day 2!  And I'm still as excited as day 1!  I hope you are too...with that, lets get moving on.  I have decided to head in another direction with this recipe.  As diets can be hard and I know for myself...carbs are my worst enemy!   But if I tell myself I can't have them...I'll eventually get into them and of course, go WAAAY overboard.  So  this next recipe is showing you that you can have your carbs and still be healthy!  So grab your aprons and hold on to your chef hats, cause we're gunna get cookin' up something good!

Tortellini with Chicken and Watercress

1 (9-ounce) package whole wheat cheese tortellini
2 bunches watercress, trimmed
2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup fat free half-and-half
1 tbs grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare tortellini according to package directions, omitting salt.  Drain and keep warm

Meanwhile, spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat.  Add watercress and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 1-2 minutes.  Add tortellini, chicken, half-and-half, Parmesan and 1/4 tsp black pepper.  Cook, tossing until heated through, about 2 minutes.
