If there were a sidekick in stuffed-pasta land, then tortellini would be a close second, and well-revered partner, to the ubiquitous ravioli.
But tortellini tastes incredible—and is incredibly versatile—on its own. So never overlook tortellini for your kitchen go-to pasta. Consider them as an appetizer, and make a batch of Tortellini Caprese Bites. Or, imagine them as packed full of flavor in some Southern Tortellini Minestrone. You can also enjoy this amazing filled pasta in any number of salads. Some of our favorites are a Chicken-and-Tortellini Salad, capable of going from table to plate as an easy weeknight meal, or a Tortellini-Tomato Salad that can practically do the same.
A little ground turkey makes the perfect foundation for a Hearty Turkey-and-Tortellini Supper, or if you want to enjoy some of the incredible tastes of a season make our Spring Tortellini with Pesto: you'll savor every bite of crisp, fresh asparagus, and love the savory salty flavor of the basil pesto. So the next time you're thinking ravioli might be just the thing, take a moment and wonder if it might be time to get some tortellini on your table.
