5 1/3 cups of tortellini
3 tsp olive oil
1 tsp crushed garlic
2 red peppers thinly sliced
1 cup of thinly sliced onions
1/2 tsp grated orange zest
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup of fresh orange juice
2 Tbsp tomato paste
2 Tbsp light sour cream

Put half a pot of water to boil, and then cook the tortellini till tender. Then drain the liquid and set the tortellini aside. Meanwhile, in large non-stick pan, heat the oil and cook the garlic allowing it to release its flavor for 1 minute. Then add the peppers, onions, orange zest, salt and ginger, and cook for 5 minutes or so. Next, add 1/4 cup of water, and bring it to a boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer for about 7 minutes. Stir in the orange juice and tomato paste in the boiling liquid, and bring it to a boil stirring frequently till the liquid goes thick. Pour the boiling contents into a blender vase and blend till smooth. Then pour into the pot combining the sauce with the cooked tortellini. Keep cooking for about 3 minutes, and it's ready to serve. Serve this delicious low fat tortellini dish warm, and sprinkle the Parmesan Cheese. Serves 4 = 5 WW Points
