Cooktop Cove: How to make a baked tortellini casserole
When it comes to pasta night, nothing beats a filling serving of cheese tortellini! Our favorite thing about casseroles is that they have the uncanny ability to take our favorite family meals up a notch, without breaking the budget or taking up too much extra time. This simple recipe for baked tortellini casserole calls for only 5 ingredients, all quickly assembled to produce a delightfully creamy, cheesy, tasty meal that will delight every member of the family!
With only pasta sauce, tortellini, and three incredible cheeses, this casserole is just about as easy as they come! We recommend using a cheese-filled tortellini such as spinach and ricotta or 'four-cheese', although any meat-filled versions will work just as well! If you have any fresh herbs lying around in the fridge that need to be used up (such as parsley, rosemary, or time), then try mixing them in with the pasta sauce and mascarpone for the ultimate hit of flavor!
Pro tip: This casserole is the perfect vessel for using up any leftover meat. If you have any cooked chicken, beef, sausage, or bacon in the fridge, simply stir it in along with the sauce before mixing in the tortellini!
