I’ve made this recipe with four cheese tortellini (Ricotta, Grana Padano, mozzarella and Parmigiano Reggiano) but any cheese tortellini will do. To make my baked tortellini recipe I used a variety of vegetables such as onions, bell pepper, zucchini, carrots, peas, green beans and corn. These vegetables added a lot of flavor to the dish and also helped making it more nourishing. If you don’t like these vegetables or have other favorites, feel free to swap these for your choice.

To add even more flavor to my tortellini with vegetables dish I added minced garlic and lots of herbs such as thyme, basil and oregano. I didn’t have to use salt as I found the cheese filling in the tortellini pasta offered just the right saltiness to my dish. I did opt for a pinch of pepper to enhance the flavors and to bring a tiny bit of a spicy note to my recipe. You can totally skip this ingredient though, especially if your pasta has pepper listed in the ingredients so check the package for salt and pepper.
