Sorry I’ve been MIA lately but here is a great crowd pleaser when you are short on time! This dish is always popular when having guests over for dinner or at a potluck! If you wanted to add grilled chicken to this dish that is also a great topper!
1 pkg of tortellini (I use the cheese stuffed kind) and it’s family sized
1 small pkg of sundried tomato sauce
2 cans of diced tomatoes (unflavoured) I use Hunts family size can’s
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
salt to taste
Cheddar cheese to top the dish off
What do I do next?
In a separate pan take your sundried tomato sauce and your diced tomatoes and mix them together on medium heat–leave on medium for about 10 minutes.
Add in your garlic and salt and let simmer for another 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your pasta with the sauce and place in a casserole dish. *note* you may need two dishes for the amount of pasta the family size makes, but if you want to save the second dish of pasta you can place it uncooked (with sauce and pasta mixed) in freezer until you need this dish and then just add cheese and bake.
Place in oven covered with cheddar cheese for about 20 minutes, if you like your cheese crispy broil it for under a minute.
optional: grill up some chicken and top off this dish with some chicken!
Let cool for 2 minutes and enjoy!
