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.

    1. I’ve never made this as a freezer meal. Not sure how the pasta would turn out with all the extra water. You can certainly try it. I would recommend thawing before baking.

    1. I haven't tried this with the refrigerated tortellini. If you give it a try, let me know how it turns out. Enjoy!

  1. Sooooo delicious and so quick to throw together! Love it! My family absolutely loves cheese filled pasta, and therefore really enjoyed this dish, as did I. On a busy weeknight, it just doesn't get any easier than this. LOVE these no-boil recipes.

  2. 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.
