Baked Tortellini (GF)

Baked TortelliniNick loves alfredo sauce. In fact, I can’t remember a time when we went to an Italian restaurant and he didn’t get some sort of alfredo dish. Unfortunately for him (and fortunately for my waist line) I do not share the same adoration for this sauce.

Since Nick is such a good sport about trying out my little experiments, I compromised with him and made a dish that incorporated this sauce. I recently discovered gluten-free tortellini, so I decided to make a hearty pasta bake.

I’m going to warn you, this is NOT the healthiest of dishes – I had a small portion with a big salad .:)

Baked Tortellini (GF)

the ingredients:

-1 pkg. gluten-free cheese tortellini, uncooked
-3 cups homemade Marinara sauce
-1/2 cup water
-1/2 jar Alfredo four cheese sauce (All “Classico” sauces are gluten-free!)
-1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
-1/2 cup shredded Smoked Mozzarella Cheese

the method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In 3 quart glass baking dish, layer tortellini and marinara sauce. Put water into empty sauce jar, close lid, and shake. Pour this mixture over the tortellini.

Spoon Alfredo sauce over the tortellini. Sprinkle with cheese.

Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes longer, until tortellini is tender and cheese is bubbling and golden brown.

Enjoy!

  1. Sophie–That looks amazingly delicious. I wish we had gf tortellinni here in the states. No energy to invent one. But your post allows me to dream!

  2. Where do you get your GF tortellini? I’ve only ever found one brand of frozen ravioli that disintegrated, and, just recently, found fresh GF ravioli at Safeway that were pretty tasty. But I have never seen tortellini anywhere! Serious cravings right now ;)
