Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Casserole

A simple homemade alfredo sauce tops this cheesy Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Casserole. It comes together in only a few minutes and is perfect for a busy night.

Each Sunday night, I plan out all my dinners for the upcoming week.

I always ask my kids what they want for dinner and their go-to answer is “CHICKEN ALFREDO!”

They are definitely my children . . . creamy sauce over a bed of pasta? Yes please!

If you love alfredo as much as we do, you might want to check out our favorite alfredo recipes:

However, most alfredo sauce is filled with butter and heavy cream. And sometimes jarred alfredo sauce has some mystery ingredients that I am not sure what they are.

I decided that for this casserole I would use our Homemade Alfredo sauce that has been lightened up. Instead of using butter and heavy cream, the base of this sauce is cream cheese and Parmesan cheese.

This alfredo sauce is so creamy and flavorful that you won’t even know you are saving yourself some extra calories!

This homemade sauce worked perfectly for this casserole. But if you don’t have time to make sauce from scratch, you can definitely use jarred alfredo sauce.

 

How to make your own lightened up alfredo sauce:

  • Start by placing milk, low fat cream cheese, flour and salt in a blender and blend it until it is completely smooth.
  • Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, melt one tablespoon of butter and garlic for a minute. Whisk in the blended milk mixture, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes.
  • Continue stirring the sauce over heat until it reaches your desired thickness, then mix in parmesan cheese.
  • Once your sauce is ready, it’s time to assemble the casserole!

 

How to make chicken alfredo tortellini casserole:

Combine alfredo sauce, cooked chicken, frozen tortellini, chicken broth, frozen vegetables and seasonings in a large 9×13″ baking pan.

 

Mix it all together right in the pan and cover with aluminum foil.

Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

 

Remove pan from the oven, remove the foil, and sprinkle with fresh shredded Parmesan cheese. Place back in the oven for 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

  1. Delicious!! Made this last night and the princesses (17&12) ate like grown men. As a single dad, when they’re happy, I’m happy. The tortellini was a little cold after 30 mins so I let cook another 15-20 mins. EXTREMELY happy with this and definitely will be making again. Thank you for the recipe.
