Cheesy Asparagus Tortellini Bake

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 (15-oz) jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1 (15-oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup baby spinach, packed
  • 2 cups mozzarella, divided
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • dash salt
  • 1 (24 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini, uncooked
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, or another 1/4 cup mozzarella


Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, add the Alfredo sauce, drained tomatoes, spinach, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, basil, crushed red pepper, and a few shakes of salt. Stir together with a rubber spatula.
Add the uncooked tortellini and use the spatula to break them apart. Stir it all together so that each tortellini is covered in sauce.
Pour the mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus, discard, and chop the rest into bite-size pieces.*
Layer the asparagus on top of the tortellini. Sprinkle another 1 cup of mozzarella over the top, then sprinkle the 1/4 cup Parmesan.
Bake in the middle rack of the preheated oven for about 30 minutes. If the edges are looking brown but the cheese in the center isn't browning, broil it for 1 minute.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes, then serve. (With a big salad and breadsticks! Yum)
