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


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


  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.
