Try these little filled dumplings in place of regular pasta to give your favorite dishes a cheesy boost.

Shopping TipsĀ 

Find cheese tortellini in the frozen or refrigerated section of your grocery store. Those stuffed with meat or vegetables will also work in the following recipes.

Read labels: We preferred the flavor of those made with the least number of ingredients.

Refrigerate tortellini for up to a week, or freeze for up to 2 months.
