Delectable Delights — Tortellini Gratin

Posted on by


Over on herding cats and burning soup, Anna does Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters; where she shares about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.


I thought I would do something similar and share my kitchen creations or disasters with you! HelloFresh has become a godsend for me when it comes to cooking. I love the easy of deliver, all the ingredients included, plus I get to try some new things.

Yellow Onion
Ground Beef
Crushed Tomatoes
Panko Breadcrumbs
Parmesan Cheese
Sour Cream


Preheat and prep: Boil water on high. Halve, peel, and dice onion. Mince 1 clove of garlic and finally chop basil.


Cook the aromatics: Heat olive oil in large pan add the onions and garlic tossing until softened. Season with salt and pepper. (Note: If you have an ovenproof pan, use it instead.)


Add the beef and break up, cooking 3-4min. Season with salt and pepper again if you like. Then add crushed tomatoes, basil, and 1/2 cup water once the meat is cooked. Reduce heat to low and stir, cooking another 5min.

Toss: Remove Tortellini w/ slotted spoon and add into the Bolognese with spinach and 1 TBSP sour cream. Stir gently. If your pan’s not ovenproof then transfer into a medium baking dish.


Broil: Sprinkle breadcrumbs over your dish and broil until browned, 2min.
