Recipe Directions

  1. For the tortellini: cover the tortellini with boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain well then turn out onto a paper towel lined sheet pan and gently blot dry.2. Preheat the air fryer to 350°F.
  2. In a shallow pan, combine breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and salt.
  3. In a separate shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
  4. Place a handful of tortellini in the beaten eggs, making sure to coat well and shaking off excess. Place in the breadcrumb mixture, coving and then lightly tossing to fully coat. Place on a sheet pan. Continue with the remaining tortellini.
  5. Working in batches as needed, place the bread crumbed tortellini in a single layer in the air fryer basket, and cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping the tortellini halfway through, until crispy and golden brown. Keep an eye on the tortellini – depending on your air fryer model it may need more or less time
  6. Remove from the air fryer and continue with the remaining tortellini.
  7. Pile the crispy tortellini onto a large serving platter, garnish with a sprinkle of grated parmesan and serve hot with the dipping trio of creamy pesto, cream garlic parmesan and marinara sauces.
