Jump to Recipe

I was looking through my photos last night and found a few older photos for recipes that I never posted. I love this cheese tortellini dish with spinach and slow roasted tomatoes. I can’t believe I forgot to share it with all of you. The photos aren’t the greatest, but the recipe is simple and very tasty.

We always keep a couple bags of cheese tortellini in our freezer for emergencies. It comes in handy when we are busy and/or feeling lazy. I love making tortellini soup, salads, and pasta dishes.I also keep slow roasted tomatoes in the freezer. I make big batches and freeze them in smaller containers so I can pull them out when I need them.They sure came in handy for this recipe. I just defrosted and reheated the tomatoes before I added them to the cheese tortellini.

The slow roasted tomatoes are full of flavor and are perfect in this dish. I also stirred in fresh spinach, parmesan cheese, and added a little drizzle of olive oil. That is it.ย I love the simplicity of this pasta dish.

  1. Tortellini is one of Mr. Fuji’s all-time favorite foods and slow roasted tomatoes are one of mine! I’m thinking this dish is going to make my family VERY happy.

  2. Love this! Simple and healthy, I’ll have to incorporate this recipe into my weeknight dinner rotation ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope your eye is feeling better too, btw!

  3. I can’t believe you didn’t share this with us earlier either. Shame on you. I think I have all these ingredients, except the tomatoes, maybe I will whip up a batch this week.

  4. I’m sorry I’m confused ๐Ÿ™ Do I put in the tomatoes and spinach directly on the tortellini? Should I cook the spinach first? And I couldn’t find slow roasted so I got diced So what do I do?? HELP!!

    1. Stir in the tomatoes and fresh spinach after you cook and drain the tortellini. You do not need to cook the spinach. It will wilt and heat up with the cooked tortellini. Diced tomatoes will work fine. Enjoy!
