Parmesan Crusted Tortellini Bites

Cheese filled tortellini that’s fried to golden perfection and dipped in warm marinara sauce.

Cook Time: 20 Min

  • 1 (9 oz.) package refrigerated three cheese tortellini*
  • 1 cup Vegetable or Canola oil (varies slightly depending on pan size)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 Teaspoons of Parsley, chopped well
  • ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ½ cup marinara sauce

  1. Mix together the panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, and red pepper flakes.
  2. Cook the tortellini until it’s 1 minute before it’s al-dente. Drain, and coat generously with flour.
  3. Dip each tortellini into the beaten eggs, and then into the panko mixture.
  4. Heat the oil in a dutch oven to 375 degrees. You may not need to use all of the canola oil but ensure that the tortellini is covered by an inch or two. 
  5. If you’re unsure if the oil is the right temperature, put a test piece of tortellini in the oil and ensure that it begins to fry almost immediately, but not too intensely. Cook the tortellini pieces for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown. You may have to do this in batches.
  6. Place on a paper towel, pat dry, and serve with warm marinara sauce!
Baking Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375° and place a greased baking sheet in the heated oven for 5 minutes.

  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until they're crisp and begin to toast and brown. 
  4. Remove from the oven and serve with warm marinara!
  5. BUITONI Refrigerated Three Cheese Tortellini is great with this recipe.
