This 5-ingredient Creamy Spinach Tortellini makes a quick and tasty dinner that all the family will love!
Can you believe that this scrumptious-looking dinner is made out of 5 ingredients and the cooking time is under 30 minutes? Indeed, it is true. It is a life saver when you are short on time and have a hungry family waiting for dinner.
I love cooking with tortellini. I used to make tortellini myself (thank you, mom, for teaching me!), but I have had to use store-bought for the past couple of years. It saves a ton of time, plus, the store-bought tortellini tastes great as well! I especially like the Three Cheese Tortellini by Buitoni, so that’s what I used in this recipe. You can find this in Walmart and a lot of other large supermarkets.
Here is a list of the necessary ingredients:
- 20 oz. package of Three Cheese Tortellini (or your favorite kind)
- 8 oz. of cream cheese
- 1 1/2 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
- 6 cups of loosely packed baby spinach leaves
- 1 cup of shredded Colby Jack or mozzarella cheese
Cook the tortellini according to the package instructions.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, simmer cream cheese with chicken stock for about 10 minutes.
Add spinach to the cream cheese sauce and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Add tortellini and mix well with the sauce.
Lastly, sprinkle the tortellini with some cheese and bake in an oven preheated to 400°F for about 10 minutes, until the cheese melts.
Your dinner is ready! I told you it’s going to be easy. 🙂 Serve the Creamy Spinach Tortellini with some fresh salad on the side.
I cannot wait to hear how you enjoyed this recipe, friends! I’d love to see some photos, so make sure you snap a picture and add #cooktoria on Instagram.
