Tips for the Tortellini Pasta recipe

This tortellini recipe is just the kind of weeknight meal that’s guaranteed to become a new favorite. Here are a few tips to make the best tortellini pasta dish ever!

  • Feel free to use any tortellini you like: chicken, spinach, ricotta… You can even use precooked tortellini pasta and throw them into the sauce instead of cooking them on the side.
  • Don’t skimp on red chili pepper flakes because they add a lot of flavors.
  • In our opinion, the refrigerated tortellini is better than dried or frozen pasta but it’s ok if that’s what you have on hand.
  • To make this tortellini pasta recipe more substantial, try chopped kale leaves instead of spinach
  • Fire-roasted tomatoes with juices are a great alternative to Italian diced tomatoes

Does this recipe work with other pasta than tortellini?

Yes, use “chunky” pasta like penne or rotini. Keep in mind the meal might be less satisfying though.

How and how long to store Tortellini Pasta leftovers?

This Tortellini Pasta in Garlic Spinach Tomato Sauce keeps well in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. You can reheat on the stove or in the microwave. Add a few drops of water when reheating to loosen the sauce.

    I too used a 16oz bag of tortellini - but also doubled the recipe. It was super tasty, but the original recipe would have been enough for 16 ounces. The best was I had enough sauce for another 16 ounce bag which made for a super quick second night meal.

    Nice and light with all the fresh vegetables. I made a 16oz bag of tortellini because I didn't think 8oz would be enough for me and my husband. It was so delicious and we ate it all up. Thank you for a great recipe. 😊
