Can I make these tortellini in the air fryer gluten free?

You can use gluten free bread crumbs and gluten free tortellini if you have a variety that you enjoy. Making those swaps can make the recipe gluten free but by nature the recipe will have gluten as written.

Gluten free tortellini are hit or miss in my opinion but there are some brands out there that work pretty well! Check out your local Aldi for options! Gluten free shopping can be a pain but they really have a wide variety or products.
