Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes and Corn

This was a fabulous dish - the kids, not such big fans! :) It was not a hit in the Connor house that night. Oh well, I enjoyed it and now I have leftovers for a bit. I thought that it would be better as a side dish though, so not sure if I will make it as a main dish again. It's so pretty with all the colors...

Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes and Corn
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 package (16 ounces) frozen corn, thawed
2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup minced fresh basil
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
4 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper

In a dutch oven, cook tortellini according to package directions, adding the corn during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Drain and rinse in cold water. In a large serving bowl, combine tortellini mixture and remaining ingredients; toss to coat.

Serves: 4 (1 3/4 cup servings)
Points: 8
