You are going to love this Italian Scallop Tortellini Bake! Marty and I don’t go out to eat that often but on special occasions we want to have a meal that’s a little bit fancier than normal. Our wedding anniversary is coming up soon and I wanted to make something special for us for dinner without completing blowing our budget.  This Italian Scallop Tortellini Bake is similar to a dish we had with shrimp at a local restaurant. I figured if they could make it, there was no reason that I couldn’t.

I wanted to keep this as easy as possible while still being a special meal. I don’t have time to spend two hours in the kitchen making dinner.  I started with frozen tortellini and frozen bay scallops. I checked out the price of the all natural sea scallops but they were very expensive so I decided to go with bay scallops instead. Either would work in this recipe. It just depends on your budget.

This Italian Scallop Tortellini Bake is a delicious splurge for that special meal; but, it still lets you stay within your budget. You could easily substitute other types of seafood depending on what you have available. I think it would taste just as good with crab or you could try a shrimp tortellini bake. You could even turn this into a sausage tortellini skillet by substituting Italian sausage.
