10 Minute One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini Recipe

10 Minute One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini

This One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini recipe makes spinach and ricotta tortellini extra delicious with a simple garlic, cream and tomato-based sauce. What makes this even better is the cook time: 7 minutes. That’s it! Even the prep time is minimal; this recipe can be made in less than 10 minutes–definitely faster than any takeaway order. The tomato and chicken stock create an amazing flavour, and the lashings of cream and 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.

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes.
