Baked Tortellini

I love tortellini. If you've never had it, it's yummy shaped pasta filled with cheese, similar to ravioli. This is super easy! You could even leave out the pesto if you wanted to make it even easier and less expensive. I love garlic and I love the extra flavor of the pesto in it. If you like this, try Beefy Baked Ravioli or one of my favorite tortellini dishes, Spinach Tomato Tortellini. I did mix some of my mozzarella cheese into the dish, but I think next time I would just put it all on top.

-2 - 13oz packages of frozen cheese tortellini
-26oz jar or can of your favorite spaghetti sauce
-2 - 4 Tbsp pesto (depends on how much you like pesto and garlic)
-8oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
-2 Tbsp Parmesan cheeseDirections
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix together spaghetti sauce and pesto, mix in frozen tortellini. Pour into 9x13 baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and then Parmesan cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.


  1. I tried this and added italian sausage. It was awesome. I did not use pesto, but used minced garlic. I now love tortellini

  2. I am so glad you like it, Shelly! I bet the Italian sausage added a lot of flavor and great idea to use the minced garlic instead of pesto. Gives that added garlic flavor without the expense of pesto. I love tortellini too! :-)
