Cheesy Pesto Tortellini Bake

This chilly weather has me craving comfort foods like this Cheesy Pesto Tortellini Bake. It's absolutely delicious and only contains five ingredients! One of the reasons why it makes such a great weeknight meal. You can't go wrong with cheesy pasta topped with a breadcrumb crust. Fabulous!

Cheesy Pesto Tortellini Bake
Serves 6

4 cups cheese tortellini (I used frozen, but fresh is fine, just adjust your cooking time)
1/2 cup basil pesto (I love Classico)
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Pre-Heat Oven to 375.

In a small bowl combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Set aside.

Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and arrange in the bottom of a casserole dish. Toss with tortellini with pesto and top with shredded cheese. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture evenly over the top.

Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and top is golden brown. Enjoy!


  1. I have everything except the mozzarella. I wonder if it would still be ok without it? Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday. Pinned and will definitely try this.
