Ingredients

  • 1 lb. cheese tortellini we like the tri-color rainbow one
  • 2 14 oz. Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 - 1 cup of your chosen mix-ins* see suggestions in the notes section
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shaved or shredded
  • 1 9x13 foil tray or freezer safe casserole dish or large freezer bag

Instructions

Assembly instructions:

  • Add everything except the Parmesan to a 9x13 baking dish or casserole dish. Stir. If you prefer to save space in your freezer,  you can add it to a large resealable freezer bag and squish it to combine.
  • Top with the Parmesan.
  • Cover with two layers of aluminum foil, one that is directly on top of the pasta so there isn't as much air in the container.
  • Freeze.

Cooking instructions:

  • Remove from freezer.
  • Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes or one hour if still frozen. If frozen, remove foil for the last 10 minutes of bake time.

Notes

*Examples of mix-ins:
cooked cubed chicken and 2 Tbsp. of pesto
sliced mushrooms and frozen peas
crumbled bacon and sundried tomatoes
sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts
browned Italian sausage
