Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1 20-ounce refrigerated package three-cheese tortellini, boiled al dente.

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 1 + 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 + 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs

  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

  • 1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes

  • 5 large eggs

  • 5 tablespoons milk

  • A sprinkling of sea salt, a few twists of freshly-ground black pepper

  • Garnishes: drizzling of melted butter, grated Parmesan, sprinkling of chili flakes, minced Italian parsley

  • Dipping sauce: one regular-sized jar of classic marinara sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Prepare shallow bowls, a whisk and a spoon.
  • In the first bowl, add flour only.
  • In the second bowl, add eggs and milk. Whisk to combine.
  • In the third bowl: Combine Panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, chili flakes, sea salt and ground pepper. Mix well.
  • Place the tortellini in the bowl of flour. Thickly coat each piece. Move the pieces to the egg/milk mixture. Coat all sides evening, taking care that no white spots of flour are visible. This is very important! Transfer the wet pieces to the bowl of bread crumbs. Generously coat each piece. Place the breaded tortellini on a baking tray, leaving plenty of space between pieces. When baking, this will allow the pieces to crisp up on all sides.
  • Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until the tortellini party snacks are beautifully crispy and golden.
  • Arrange on a party tray alongside a bowl of marinara sauce for dipping. Drizzle melted butter over the top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, and minced Italian parsley.
