I love stuffed pasta. Those pillows are convenient, inexpensive, easy to use, and fast to cook. These great recipes use them to wonderful advantage. You can make these recipes with any flavor of tortellini or ravioli. Just cook the pasta until it's hot and tender, then proceed with the recipe. The following is a collection of hot entrees and cold main dish salads. And all of them are delicious all year round!
If you want a make ahead casserole perfect for entertaining, this is it. This recipe uses pasta sauce, Alfredo sauce, and pesto to make a decadent and delicious, special dish. To make it ahead of time, assemble it, then cover and chill until you're ready to pop it into the oven. Add another 10 to 15 minutes of baking time, until it's hot, bubbly, and perfectly wonderful.
Another five ingredient recipe! This bright and delicious recipe is perfect summer, fall, spring, and winter. If you can't find good looking tomatoes in the cold months, chop up cherry tomatoes and use those!
This wonderful casserole takes just a few minutes to prepare, and it feeds a crowd. It's casual enough for a family dinner, and special enough for entertaining. You could make it with cooked chicken, turkey, or ham too!
This five ingredient recipe is a real winner. It's a great way to use up leftover ham after your holiday parties and gatherings. Since there are only a few ingredients, each ingredient is very important. Use the best Caesar dressing you can find, along with frozen broccoli florets, not chopped broccoli.
Now this is something special. If you can find chicken meatballs premade, this recipe takes just a few minutes. Or you can make your own! I love to make this recipe when entertaining.
Tomato Tortellini Soup is a real winner for lunch or dinner. Something incredible happens when you combine canned soups with other ingredients. The finished product tastes like so much more than the sum of the individual foods.
Unless you want to live on cold cereal and toast, this recipe is the easiest ever. Just combine frozen tortellini and sauces in a casserole and bake it. You'll be amazed at how easy it is and how wonderful it tastes.
You know that broccoli and bacon salad that was all the rage this year? It had a sweet dressing, dried cranberries, and almonds. I added tortellini to it to turn it into a main dish. And it's simply fabulous.
I love wild rice with just about everything. Although I haven't tried wild rice brownies - yet. The combination of foods in this recipe is nothing short of spectacular.
