Cheesy Garlic Tortellini Pasta - an easy, delicious and cheesy dinner recipe ready in less than 20 minutes!!

My kids are picky eaters, and it’s starting to drive me up the walls.

I’m sure many of you can relate because I’m constantly asked for simple dinner ideas that the whole family will love. I try to come up with as many of those, which is why I end up making a lot of pasta dishes. You see, pasta always goes over pretty well with my kids, which means we end up having it at least one night a week. From spaghetti to fettuccine, I like to add one of these pasta recipe to the weekly menu plan each week because they’re usually simple and something all of my kids will eat. Maybe it’s because cheese and pasta are usually involved and those are simple ingredients kids love. I had that in mind when I was coming up with today’s recipe. It was inspired by our Creamy Penne Pasta recipe that we make at least once a month. I love tortellini and was trying to get my kids to like it, so I decided to use tortellini in this recipe and it was a hit. This Cheesy Garlic Tortellini Pasta is now a new dinner recipe that the kids loved! I’m glad it worked out and since there are so many varieties of tortellini, I’m hoping we can try out other versions as well.
