10 Minute One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini Recipe

10 Minute One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini

Spinach and ricotta tortellini are made delicious with a simple garlic, cream and tomato-based sauce. The cook time is 7 minutes. 7 minutes! And with minimal prep! Definitely faster than any takeaway order. The tomato juices and chicken stock create an amazing flavour. Cream and lashings of parmesan top it off. The beauty of this recipe is that the tortellini does not need to be precooked. It is simply added to the sauce making this the perfect fast and easy, one-pot family dinner.

    Would never have thought something so quick & easy would be so delicious. I always add some zucchini as well for extra veggie content. So flavoursome.. it’s on regular rotation in my household now – we love it!
    Thank you

    If you haven’t made this, make it. I now always have Rana pasta in my freezer for this quick kid friendly mid week meal!!

    So tasty and easy. We eat meat most nights but I thought I would give this a try for a meat free Monday. I was so impressed, it’s so delicious and not boring tasting like I thought a vegetarian meal would be 🤣 I can’t wait to make it again!

    Have made this recipie twice now and it is a big hit with 2 very hungry teenage boys. Will definitely be adding this to our regular meal plan rotation.

    Do you think it would work with diced normal tomatoes and maybe a touch of sugar? I forgot to buy cherry tomatoes and have excess normal tomatoes

    We have this on 3/4 weekly rotation in our home, it’s a super quick crowd pleaser.
    Never leave Rana pasta in the shelf if it’s on sale, staple in the home!
