How Long to Boil Tortellini
It only takes 5 to 10 minutes to boil tortellini, making it a relatively quick and simple pasta to prepare. You can tell it's done when the pasta rises to the top of the boiling water. To double-check to be sure that it's cooked to your liking, you can take a bite of one of them. Like any pasta, it should be cooked al dente, meaning that it's soft but still has a little bit of bite to it. Once the tortellini is done cooking, you can strain it and serve it with any topping you like.
