Tortellini Bake Recipe

One year I had so much summer squash, I was desperate for different ways to prepare it. That's when I came up with this recipe. Serve it as a side dish or on its own as a light meal. —Donald Roberts, Amherst, New Hampshire

"We thought this was pretty good, but not amazing. I had trouble figuring out when to stop cooking the veggies so they were still a bit crisp. So in the end they were a little more crisp than I would have liked. I also feel like there was way too much pepper. And I love pepper. Next time I might try using heavy cream instead, or just using my own alfredo sauce."

"I have been making this recipe for quite a while now and love the flavor every time. I follow the recipe line by line with the exception of substituting 1 Tbsp. fresh basil in place of the dry basil. Yummy!"

"I made this recipe using 2 yellow squash, a green pepper, and red onion. I also used a pre-made Alfredo sauce. The family loved it as did I. I am trying to increase the amount of veggies we eat, and this recipe is great for that!"

"I used a can of alfredo sauce that I had on hand for this instead of the cheese and cream mixture. It was still delicious!"
