This dish is hearty, flavorful, and perfect for a cozy night in. Plus, it’s a “dump and bake” recipe, which means it requires minimal prep and clean-up.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 cup chopped artichoke hearts (canned or frozen)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the tortellini, chicken, spinach, artichoke hearts, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, heavy cream, chicken broth, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir until all of the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread it out evenly. Make sure the tortellini is fully submerged in the liquid.
  4. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the tortellini mixture.
  5. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the tortellini is cooked through.
  7. Let the dish cool for a few minutes before serving.

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you’re short on time, you can use pre-cooked chicken or a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking your own.
  • For an even creamier dish, you can use half-and-half instead of heavy cream.
  • If you’re not a fan of artichoke hearts, you can leave them out or substitute them with another vegetable, such as roasted red peppers or mushrooms.
  • If you’re cooking for a larger crowd, you can easily double the recipe and use a larger baking dish.

This Chicken Spinach and Artichoke Baked Tortellini is a crowd-pleaser that’s easy to make and easy to love. It’s the perfect dish for a cozy night in, and it’s sure to become a family favorite in no time. Enjoy!
