Servings: 4


  • Large oven-proof sauté pan


  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 oz. cremini (baby bella) mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion or shallots
  • 1 (5-oz.) bag or pkg. fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 (25-oz.) jar DeLallo Pomodoro Spicy Vodka Sauce*
  • 1 (9 or 10-oz.) pkg. fresh cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. fresh chopped basil leaves


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
    Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe sauté pan (such as cast iron or stainless steel) over medium heat. Add onion and mushrooms; sauté until golden, about 8 minutes.
    Add spinach and cook until wilted, stirring often, about 2 minutes. Season veggies with salt.
  • Stir in vodka sauce and tortellini. Cover pan with foil and transfer to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
    Remove foil and stir the tortellini. Scatter mozzarella overtop and place back in the oven, uncovered, for 5 more minutes.
    Heat broiler to HIGH and broil for 2 to 3 more minutes for a golden topping. Garnish with fresh basil.


*If you'd like to add meat, sauté 8 oz. of ground beef or turkey in the pan before adding the onion and mushrooms.
*For less spice, use classic vodka sauce
