This recipe actually comes from my good friend Jo’s new cookbook (she blogs amazing food over at Jo Cooks).

30 Minute One Pot Meals…  WHAT?!  I know right…  30 minutes AND only one pot, I’m totally all over this! I mean, I really really love this book because it’s loaded with so many great weeknight dinners.  The best part is that each recipe is on the table in 30 minutes without a huge stack of dishes! (Oh, and you’ll definitely want to try the Sriracha Chicken Zoodle Lo Mein.. with just one dish! It’s one of my favorites!)

Ok, back to the recipe at hand here. I’m super excited to share this pizza inspired baked tortellini recipe with you because it’s so quick to make and everyone in my family loves it… the best part was that there is no need to pre-cook the pasta!

This recipe uses tomato sauce but making this pizza baked tortellini with meat sauce is the perfect meat lovers pizza pasta!

We love making this baked tortellini with spinach, mushrooms, peppers, ham… the possibilities are endless. We serve this with a fresh garden salad and bread with garlic butter for a quick and easy meal.

This dish is great the day you make it and it’s delicious leftover too should you be lucky to have any left!

  1. This recipe is so simple. it is so delicious. you can mix it up so many ways. we have used meat ravioli and cheese ravioli as well as tortellini. it turns out great each time and we put different toppings on each time. we change the sauce up too. thank you so much for this recipe!5 stars

    1. For this recipe, we use fresh from the refrigerator section. If those are not available, I’d suggest frozen (but defrosted first).

  2. Made this tonight……huge hit! Served with garlic bread! I put the mushrooms,red pepper onions and olives as side dishes because some people don’t want them cooked in!
    Will be making again! Thanks!

  3. my husband and I both love this recipe. I use frozen tortellini, no water. love your recipes in general. What is the serving size approx on this recipe?5 stars

    1. Hi Andrea, I would thaw tortellini before baking. If using frozen tortellini you may need to increase the cooking time to accommodate it.

  4. Made the one pot pizza tortellini bake last night, and if I could give this recipe 10 stars, I would! It was delicious and so simple to make. It should almost be criminal for such an easy recipe to taste sooo good (but you must love pizza!). I used mushroom filled tortellini, baked it in a 9×13 pan (I had 3-10 oz packages of tortellini .. so added the entire 24 oz jar of marinara). It smelled wonderful as it baked and … my husband loved it. Thank you for another great recipe Holly!5 stars
