The best thing about this recipe is that the active time is 10 minutes but it feeds the entire family. There is no hassle to make the dish as you can get everything in the supermarkets.
Fresh vs. Frozen Tortellini
You can get fresh and frozen tortellini at the stores. Buy them fresh if they are available, if not, you can always cook and bake frozen tortellini in the oven.
However, for the best results, I usually parboil frozen tortellini in hot boiling water for a minute or so before baking them in the oven.
How Do You Make Baked Tortellini?
To make baked tortellini, you need the following ingredients:
- Fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
- Pasta sauce
- Mozarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Olive oil
First, you parboil the tortellini. Then you transfer them to a baking dish and mix with the pasta sauce.
After that, you top the tortellini with the cheese and bake in oven.
The baked tortellini will be done when the cheese melts and turn golden brown.
For my recipe, I used mini tortellini because I just love everything mini. Things just seem better when they are mini sized.
However, you can use regular sized tortellini. Try this Cheesy Baked Tortellini recipe, I am sure you will love it.
