No Meat Tortellini

No Meat Tortellini

A no meat tortellini is one that I am going to document as I go.  This is literally the first time I’ve made it.  I saw a recipe online for making something similar and it looked good.  There are already some modification ideas that I have added to this recipe.

The other tortellini recipe uses jarred alfredo sauce.  While that is fine, using my homemade Chicken Alfredo Sauce (sans the chicken of course) is a better option in my humble opinion.  I decided to make this meat free because we have been trying to eat less red meat.  I do plan to make a version with meat in the future.

I used some leftover spaghetti sauce from my No Meat Manicotti I made earlier this week for the spaghetti sauce.  I’ve been trying to be more cognizant of wasting food and have found that I can generally make half of what I usually do and still have leftovers sometimes.  Hence, I have half a jar of spaghetti sauce in my fridge that I’m using for this. A homemade spaghetti sauce recipe is something I want to work on in the near future and will post that adventure here as well.

I cooked this entire meal in my Lodge Dutch Oven.  It could be made using a a crock pot or instant pot.  When summer comes back around I am going to try this in a camping setting.
