Top Tips for the best Creamy Tomato Garlic Tortellini Bake

For this recipe, you can use whichever tortellini you want but I used spinach and ricotta tortellini for that added flavour and taste to your dish.

Cherry tomatoes are delicious and the better quality they are, the more flavour it will add to your Creamy Tomato Garlic Tortellini Bake.

I used a whole head of garlic for this recipe and kept it just as it is when roasted with the tomatoes. I only chopped the head of so it can roast better and then squeezed the garlic out so all the garlic puree mixes in well with the sauce, of course for that added flavour and perfection 🙂
