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

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

  3. 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!!!

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

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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!

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

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

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

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

  12. 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?

  13. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

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

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

  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. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

  23. 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?

  24. Delicious! And easy to make!

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

  26. 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?

  27. 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!

  28. Did you use dried or frozen tortellinis

  29. Video showed adding water. How much?
