  • Incredibly easy Tortellacci recipe – inspired by Maggiano’s.

    15 Minute Tortellaci | fast & flavorful recipe

    After a year plus hiatus at Maggiano’s, I was sad to discover that they discontinued their tortellacci! It was so good that I never tried another dish. I tend to be a creature of habit & this time, it backfired. Fortunately, I’m also in love with their salad! Still, I went home with the craving I came with, so, my family suffered through pasta twice in one day to satisfy my craving & I was off to the grocery store to recreate Maggiano’s Tortellacci recipe! It’s not only incredible, but a quick & easy 15 minute dinner – perfect for my new series!

    Even with my 10 & 15 minute dinner recipes, I try to create a balanced meal, so I incorporated wilted greens which adds a lot of great flavor!

    What is Tortellacci?

    Tortellacci is a stuffed noodle, often with ricotta and sometimes spinach in a tortellini shape to prevent the filling from leaking into the pasta water while cooking.
