Cheesy Ham and Tortellini Bake - an easy 30 minute meal the whole family will love!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve got a delicious and easy Cheesy Ham and Tortellini Bake for you today! Because I love a 30 minute meal! Especially one that the kids eat without complaint!

Those are my favorite.

Don’t you just love tortellini? I am obsessed. They literally cook in 2 minutes and they make a meal so much more fun than regular pasta. Why have plain pasta when you can have cheese-filled pasta? That’s my life motto.

Along with the tortellini, this yummy casserole has ham, peas, lots of swiss cheese, and a crispy Ritz cracker topping. Ritz crackers make everything better, right?

If you’re not into swiss, use whatever cheese you like. I’d actually bought Parmesan for this but I accidentally melted all of it onto tortilla chips during a weak moment over the weekend. Whoops.

But yes, any cheese will work! I wouldn’t go for, like, a pepperjack but you know, swiss, Parmesan, or cheddar would all be delicious.
