Chicken Mushroom Tortellini Bake

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

I always keep a few packages of fresh tortellini in my freezer for quick weeknight meals, and this Chicken Mushroom Tortellini Bake is one of my favorite ways to prepare it.

Chicken Mushroom Tortellini Bake

You can use frozen tortellini in this recipe too, but you’d have to boil it first, leaving it slightly undercooked.

This dish is easy to adapt by adding different vegetables (peppers and peas are good) and it’s even good with ravioli or just regular pasta.

My whole family loves this baked tortellini, although some of them do pick out the mushrooms. But I love them, so I never leave them out!

I also love that this easy pasta dish comes together so quickly, and it can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake it.
