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.
