It’s easy to pass over the freezer section of the grocery store, but you’ll be missing out if you skip the trip! Here frozen tortellini are an easy, affordable way to make a dish into a full-on meal. Pastas and soups become a substantial meal with the addition of these meat or cheese-filled pastas. Tortellini turn a plain casserole or a soup into the star of any dinnertime and, better yet, by using partially cooked, frozen tortellini you’ll be cutting your prep time in half.

No-Boil Creamy Tortellini Bake

A pasta dinner can be a quick and easy meal, or it can be a lengthy one that involves boiling the pasta and building a delicious sauce to go with it. But you can have it both ways. With this easy one-dish dinner, you get a creamy layered sauce and you don’t have to boil a single noodle. (Or in this case, a single tortellini.)

One-Pot Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup

It doesn’t get much more comforting than tomato basil soup, but once we added tortellini to it? Game. Changer. The addition of these little, cheese-stuffed pockets takes this delicious classic from the perfect side dish to the perfect, full dinner. Whether you decide to serve this dish with a fresh salad or some crusty garlic bread is up to you – either way you can’t go wrong!

Easy Cheesy Baked Tortellini

Sometimes a comforting cheesy dinner is the only thing that will hit the spot, and when that’s the case this Easy Cheesy Baked Tortellini is the perfect solution. You can trust that it’s plenty cheesy because instead of relying on basic pasta as the base, it uses cheese tortellini! What that means is there’s triple the cheese – cheese in the base, cheese in the sauce, and a golden brown cheesy blanket to top it all off. It’s comfort food done right.

Creamy Parmesan Spinach Mushroom Tortellini Soup

We don’t know how this always happens, but we always fall into the pattern or forgetting how delicious and versatile tortellini can be! We only ever think to make them as a traditional pasta dish, but really there are so many more options. Basically unlimited soup options and we are most excited about this one that we made the other week. Creamy parmesan spinach mushroom tortellini soup to be exact. This stuff is creamy, flavorful and delicious, and we can’t get enough.

Creamy Tortellini Mac and Cheese

We’ve really run the gamut and aimed to try as many different mac and cheeses as possible, but this ridiculously creamy tortellini mac and cheese might top them all. Packed full of caramelized onion and bacon, with a generous helping of velveeta for maximum smoothness (though you can use any cheese you like), this pasta is decadently delicious and we guarantee everyone you serve it to will rave about it. You can’t lose with this one!
