Serve with garlic bread or another crusty bread of your choice.

The bread is the perfect complement to the creamy texture of this meal that has become one of my family’s favorite recipes.

Have a family member who likes a little bit of heat added to their dinner plates? 

They might enjoy a sprinkling of red pepper flakes on top of their tortellini. 

A pinch of fresh parmesan cheese also makes a fantastic topping for this dish. 

A great recipe your whole family will love!

Leftover Creamy Tortellini

My opinion? 

This recipe tastes even better served as leftovers! 

If you find yourself with leftovers, simply store in an airtight container and pop in your fridge to warm and serve the next day.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! We have tried it both ways – I believe the one you see pictured here is Buitoni brand~

  8. No Taryn, you need the juice from the tomatoes along with the chicken broth to cook the tortellini.

    How many does it serve?

    1. thislittlehomeofmineblog@gmail.com says:

      This usually serves our family of six – and we typically have some leftovers!

  10. Could this be done on the stovetop or as an oven bake? We don’t have a Crock-Pot but would like to try this.

    1. thislittlehomeofmineblog@gmail.com says:

      I bet it would work on the stove top! That might be a good way for us to try this one when we’re out of town – love that idea!

      1. If you do try it on the stove, could you leave any tips about what worked? ☺️
