If you are struggling to know what to make for dinner this recipe is so refreshing. Broccoli, Parmesan, cream cheese, Tortellini, garlic and more all come together. 

Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Bake

If you have never made homemade Alfredo sauce you are missing out. Simple ingredients, and it provides tons of flavor compared to jar. 

How To Make

The first step is seasoning your chicken then tossing it on the grill. Cook until the chicken pieces are fully cooked. 

Next you will work on making your Alfredo sauce. Add butter to a pan and let it begin to melt. Add in flour and whisk well. 

You want to whisk it for a minute or two. Then slowly stir in the heavy cream. Whisk continuously to prevent burning. 

Add in the remaining sauces for the sauce and then pour the mixture into your saucepan and Stir well.

Toss in Parmesan and cook until it melts down well. Now, begin to start assembling your casserole.

Assemble your casserole and then bake as directed. Once done garnish if you want and serve with salad, breadsticks or garlic bread, or any other fave. 

Best Tortellini To Use

I used frozen tortellini but you are more than welcome to reach for fresh refrigerated tortellini as well. If you happen to use dry, cook it first as directed on the box.

Then pull it and drain about 2 minutes before it is done so it doesn’t become too soggy as it bakes in the oven.

Variations To Baked Tortellini

  • Leave the chicken out for a meatless dish
  • Swap out broccoli for other veggies or do no veggies.
  • Use a red sauce instead of alfredo.
  • If you don’t want to use homemade alfredo sauce buy jar sauce. We just love the taste of homemade.

Those are a few fun ways to change up the recipe a bit to fit your needs. This chicken alfredo tortellini bake is one of our tastiest recipes for pasta lovers.

Storage For Leftover Chicken Casserole

If you happen to have some leftover casserole, make sure to store it refrigerated. It will spoil if left out. Due to the cream sauce it will not freeze and thaw without curdling a bit.

This is a great dish to make and store for an easy grab and heat lunch or even weeknight dinner when you are not feeling like cooking.
