No-Boil Baked Cheese Tortellini

No-Boil Baked Cheese Tortellini - everything cooks in the pan, even the frozen tortellini! Super easy weeknight meal!

We love baked pasta dishes at our house. I especially love no boil baked pasta dishes! Just toss everything in the pan and let the oven do all the work! Saves on dirty dishes too! Chicken Legs loves any recipe that does that! (He is the kitchen cleaner.)

In addition to being super easy, this dish is also super delicious! It is packed full of great flavors. We ate this for dinner and again for lunch the next couple of days. It was equally delicious reheated! I used Italian sausage in this dish, but you can certainly use hamburger if that is your preference. You could also leave it out if you prefer a meatless dish.

  2. If you were to add spinach to this, would you suggest wilting fresh before adding or just using fresh (uncooked) spinach?

    1. I would just add in uncooked.... It will turn out well... that's how I do it when I bake my lazy lasagna... hope that helps

  5. Would the tortellini need to be thawed or is the cook time frozen?

  7. Sorry to seem an idiot but I am from South Africa, although we do use and have the same kind of ingredients, we just use different names for it so I often look for the meaning on the net this time what is Tortellini is it cheese or pasta.Thank you for a great blog, I really enjoy it as I love food and cooking and as I am now a cripple after a stroke I have all the time to look at new ideas and I have also written a cook book but not published yet as I do not have the funds to have it printed.

  8. would frozen ravioli work as well? Small raviolis rather than large?

    1. I think small frozen ravioli would work fine. Enjoy!

  10. Sounds so yummy!! I wonder, could I make this in the crock pot (obviously brown the ground meat first)?
