  1. This is funny video says to add water in the ingredients there is no mention of adding water  
    So do you or do you not add Water????

  2. Wondering if I use fresh mushrooms if I should cook them a little first before adding to the dish.

    • I’ve only made the recipe as written. Since fresh mushrooms give off liquid, I agree cooking ahead would be a good idea. Let us know if you try it Cindy!

  3. Video showed adding water. How much?

  4. Did you use dried or frozen tortellinis

  5. Hi! Making this recipe this weekend! Quick question…Is it OK to put the tortellini in frozen? Or, should I cook them first? Thanks!

    • I haven’t tried it that way Milissa. I think that you may need to cook it a bit longer. Let us know how it works out for you!

  6. I purchased the items to make this for dinner. But I bought frozen tortellini. Does water still need to be adden and do I need to thaw the tortellini?

  7. Could you use meat stuffed tortellini instead of cheese stuffed. 

  8. Delicious! And easy to make!

  9. I made it according to directions and with refrigerated tortellini. Not good. Most of the tortellini was still hard and uncooked. Looked forward to this dish a great deal but couldn’t eat it. 

    • I’ve made this several times and it’s always worked perfectly for me. I can’t say for sure what went wrong with yours, did you add the full amount of water?

  10. I have made this several times, it is delicious and I’m making it again YUM

  11. Looks delish!!!Does it have to be cooked in the skillet?? Why not a casserole dish?

  12. Absolutely love this dish! Thank you for sharing! Salad and garlic bread with it offers something for everyone.:)

  13. I’m sure it tastes delicious for sure as the picture. So My inspiring :)

  14. This sounds so good! And easy! =)
    My family would love it!

  15. Can’t get much easier than this. I didn’t have an ovenproof skillet, so I just used a 13×9 glass baking dish instead. Served with garlic bread.

  16. The tortellini was too hard. If I make this again I will cook it before putting it in the pan. Marinara/spaghetti sauce comes in 3 cup jars – I will just use the whole jar, there was room for it in the pan.

  17. Is it one and a half pounds of tortellini or just a half pound?

  18. Can you use a casserole dish for this? I don’t have an oven safe pan

  19. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

  20. I will have to change it to be a precooked GF Penne…still looks great. Should I add more cheese since it isn’t stuffed?

  21. Which tortellini did you use? Dry, like pasta aisle or fresh from the fridge?
    Thanks!
    Janice

  22. Could you make this as a freezer meal and if so how would you prepare it and how long would you bake it?
    Thanks

  23. The pizza tortellini looks fantastic. Is it a dry or a frozen pasta?

  24. Can I use frozen or dry tortellini in this? Thanks

  25. I don’t have an oven safe skillet so can I use a 9×13 glass pan instead? Looks amazing, can’t wait for the kids to try this one!

  26. How creative! I’m Italian, so I usually have tortellini the traditional way, but this sounds very yummy.

  27. YOU HAD ME AT ONE POT! THIS PIZZA TORTELLINI LOOKS INCREDIBLE! BOTH OF OUR KIDS LOVE ANYTHING PIZZA; I CANT WAIT TO TRY THIS! THANKS FOR POSTING!

  28. That book looks great when you want a quick and satisfying meal. The one pot pizza looks so simple to make too

  29. The cast iron pan is ready to go for this one! The kids & their parents are going to love this tasty, quick, on dish meal! Thanks!!!

  30. What’s not to love? It’s cheesy and made in 30 minutes? Oh yes! Have to give this a try.

  31. The CHEESE factor! Off the charts which is my perfect kind of dish!
