Do you want a simple, yet tasty, meal for your family? Do you need to use up some produce that is going bad? Pan fried tortellini with fresh veggies is a family and kid-friendly recipe!

Finding dinners that my kids all love is difficult. All of my kids tend to have different tastes. While I don’t make multiple dinners, I do ensure there is something for everyone. It seems like a rarity when I can find a dinner everyone enjoys, but this is one.

What I love about making it is that it takes less than 30 minutes – seriously. Start to finish, you can easily make this dinner in 20 minutes. On top of that, you can use whatever veggies your family loves or whatever is going bad in the produce drawer. Do you have broccoli that needs used? Add it! Mushrooms that look like they need used by tomorrow? Add them too!

Your entire family is going to love this. Oh, and the suggested amount of butter can be adjusted. More butter is always better. If someone tries to tell you otherwise, don’t listen. Who needs that negativity in life?!

Pan Fried Tortellini with Fresh Veggies

Do you want a dinner that takes less than 30 minutes to make? Pan fried tortellini with fresh veggies is a delicious and quick meal for your family! 

Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 bag frozen tortellini
  • 4 to 6 TBSP butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 cups assorted fresh veggies
  • parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Melt half of the butter on one side of a griddle pan. Dump the entire bag of frozen tortellini, typically 15 ounces or 1 pound. 
  2. Chop up whatever fresh veggies you have on hand! We love broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, cauliflower, or whatever is going bad in the produce drawer.

  3. Toss the tortellini in the melted butter. 

  4. Melt the other half of the butter on the other side of the griddle. 
  5. Add all of your fresh veggies and garlic. Toss together and let cook.

  6. Continue cooking until the tortellini have a bit of a crisp to them, but don't let them burn! You might need to add more butter.

  7. Turn off the griddle and serve! Sprinkle liberally with parmesan cheese.
