Baked tortellini is an easy dinner recipe that’s bursting with flavor! Throw the pasta and sauce in the pan and bake.


  • 28-ounce can crushed fire roasted tomatoes (or best quality crushed tomatoes*)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 18 ounces refrigerated cheese tortellini or tortelloni (not dried pasta)
  • 2 cups chopped spinach (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Italian panko


  1. Preheat 400°F.
  2. In large bowl, mix the crushed fire roasted tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, dried oregano, kosher salt , water, tortellini, and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
  3. If using spinach, place it in the bottom of a baking dish. Pour the sauce and tortellini on top. Top with the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil. Bake 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the aluminum foil and top with the panko. Bake 10 more minutes until browned. Serve immediately.


*If desired, you can also use a high quality marinara sauce: we suggest still adding the balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, and dried oregano.
