Tricked Out Tortellini from Buitoni

Prepackaged pastas aren’t usually much to write about.

But the Whole Wheat Three Cheese Tortellini from Buitoni is a fabulous fiber find with flavor to boot.

The first ingredient – whole durum wheat – is a whole grain responsible for the 6g fiber per serving. Durum wheat is the hardest of all wheats, is high in protein, and is used to make pasta.

I found the Buitoni WW pasta product in the refrigerated aisle at Target. A 9 oz package (2 1/2 servings) runs you $3.99 and nets:

  • 300 calories
  • 10 g fat (3 g saturated fat)
  • 500 mg sodium
  • 6 g fiber
  • 16 g protein

Like all packaged foods, this tortellini is higher in sodium than a homemade whole foods version would be. However, if you’re not into making your own whole wheat pasta, then this is a pretty delicious alternative…if you can keep from eating the whole package in one sitting!
