I made my Caponata recipe (Caponata) for appetizers and had 2 cups left and had to decide what to do with it. Well after doing some searching on the web, I was struck with inspiration---Tortellini and Caponata Bake! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I served this with a green side salad.
- 1 1⁄3 cups cheese tortellini or 1 1⁄3 cups spinach and cheese tortellini
- 2 cups caponata (Caponata)
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 -3 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Boil the tortellini al dente, approximately 10 minute.
- Drain, return to pan and toss to dry, stir in the leftover caponata and warm, stirring to combine; stir in red pepper flakes.
- Pour the ingredients into a small dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, sprinkle the grated cheese over all and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and mixture is heated through.
Gday! I previously did review, Seems it did not take TRUE! This dish is delish! Fulfilled my craving for a low fat dish! TERRIFIC dish! THANKS!
This is excellent. I am eating it right now. I used some leftover bought caponata, mixed it with a small amount of tomato sauce that i needed to use up. FAST and easy and yummy. I cut it down to 1-2 people, it was perfect
