Phil's Tips

Cooked pasta can replace the Tortelloni. 350g of raw pasta will produce roughly 500g of cooked pasta.

No extra salt is needed in this recipe, due to the stock cube and the prepared sauce.

Any cheese will work perfectly on this bake.

Any cooked leftover meat or fish always works well in a pasta bake.

For extra crispness, place the bake under a hot grill.
