Around here, we love a good supermarket hack whether it’s leftover rotisserie chicken dinners to upgrading boxed brownie mix.

Either way, this quick-cooking, stuffed pasta is perfect for switching up your typical pasta recipes with something hearty and comforting. Not to mention, tortellini can be used in a variety of ways—think pasta salads, cozy soups, or baked pasta recipes.
Here, you’ll find tons of ways to use packaged tortellini for a crowd-pleasing Italian dinner that your whole family will love. Ree Drummond is a big fan of tortellini whether it’s filled with cheese or spinach. She uses it to make her creamy tortellini soup and her twist on regular pasta primavera using tortellini instead. Looking to go beyond your typical weeknight dinners? Try using tortellini in creative appetizer recipes like the antipasto tortellini skewers or the crispy tortellini made in an air fryer. With so many options to choose from, you might just make tortellini your new favorite pasta shape.
