One-dish meals are often popular because they are easy to store in the fridge if there are leftovers, can be made ahead and left for the family with only reheating directions, and are easy to take for lunch the next day.

This recipe for cheesy baked tortellini can be easily modified by using vegetable-filled tortellini instead of cheese-filled. This allows a bit of variety and makes it a bit healthier. Enjoy!

  • 1 lb lean (at least 93%) ground turkey
