This is a favorite for my teenagers - paired with a leafy green salad. I use refrigerated cheese tortellini, and it works very well.

This first time I tried this I used tortellini that was dehydrated in a bag. I have never worked with tortellini so I just dumped them in without cooking them first. Epic fail! Pasta was chewy and had dehydrated cubes of what I think was cheese in the center. We ate out that night! So tortellini take 2...I bought fresh tortellini this time and once again, did not cook prior to dumping them in the sauce. These turned out GREAT! Tasty triumph...kid approved...mom fist pumps the air good!

I think this recipe would be improved by not broiling the pasta, but just serving it with the sauce and eliminating this step. I will give it another try.
Delicious, but the tortellini turned out a little chewy. I'd like to try it again, but I'd boil the tortellini separately and cook the sauce without them.
Yes, the tortellini cook in the milk. I added mine frozen and it turned out great. Kids loved it too!
Does anyone know if the tortellini in this recipe are frozen? Or do I boil them first? Or do they cook in the milk?
