Roasted Vegetable Tortellini Bake

Ingredients

– for the veggies

Olive oil
One pint grape tomatoes
One red bell pepper, sliced into strips
One orange bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 medium onion, sliced
1 tsp Italian seasoning
sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste

– for the tortellini

1/2 Tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (omit if you are sensitive to heat)
9-10 oz refrigerated three cheese tortellini
4 oz fresh spinach
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cups vegetable broth
8 oz mozzarella, shredded and divided

Directions

Spread peppers, onions, and tomatoes out on a rimmed baking sheet drizzled with olive oil. Drizzle vegetables lightly with olive oil, then season with Italian seasoning, sea salt, and pepper and stir gently to coat. Spread veggies back out in a single layer and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat 1/2 Tbsp olive oil in an oven-safe Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Brown garlic and crushed red pepper in olive oil for one minute. Stir in broth, increase heat to high, and bring to a boil; add tortellini, stir, and return to a boil. Cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to medium. Gently stir in Parmesan and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella for another minute, or until cheese is completely melted. Stir in spinach and cook for a couple more minutes until wilted, then gently stir in roasted veggies. Top with remaining mozzarella, then bake tortellini at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve topped with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

You can’t go wrong with all this cheese…

You really, really, can’t…

You can mix it up with different veggies, too — roasted broccoli would be great in here, as would mushrooms. Just keep it to a similar balance of pasta vs. veggies.
