Baked Tortellini Recipe
So you can make a homemade pasta sauce to pair with your tortellini, or you can opt to buy a jar. I reach for jarred pasta when I can to help cut a corner in the prep department, but not give up the quality of the flavor of the dish. I used the Bertolli Tomato and Basil but you are welcome to use any of your favorite brand of pasta sauce.
Do You Use Fresh Tortellini Pasta for Baked Tortellini
I like to use Refrigerated Fresh Tortellini. I find the flavor over the frozen doesn’t even stand a chance. You can use a Cheese Tortellini or a Meat Tortellini, it really is up to you!

How to Make Baked Tortellini
The first step is to place the Sauce and Cream Cheese in the baking dish, then place the dish in the oven for about 10 minutes on 350 Degrees. When you pull it out of the oven the cheese and sauce will both be warm and you can easily mix the 2 together to make a creamy sauce!
I like to boil my pasta before adding it to the sauce mixture, then I add the Tortellini to the Sauce Mixture along with the Parmesan Cheese, and then Top with Mozerella. It’s so rich and delicious but SO SIMPLE! Let’s just say that again, this is a recipe you can make for your family or for a crowd and it’s so simple with only 5 Ingredients Total!
Serve with your favorite Salad, Bread or Vegetables! My family loves Salad and since this dish is so rich, it’s a nice mixture, my kids even ask for seconds of this!
