Italian Sausage and Tortellini

We L-O-V-E this recipe! Not only is it super easy, but it is super yummy too!
Italian Sausage and Tortellini

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb Sweet Italian Sausage (I can usually only find links)
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 24 oz package of fresh cheese Tortellini
  • 3 cups spaghetti sauce (1-24 oz jar) + 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  1. Remove skins from Italian Sausage.
  2. Heat olive oil in an oven safe skillet. Add sausage (I usually tear each link apart by hand and add small bite-size pieces) and cook until no longer pink.
  3. Add spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning, water, and tortellini. Stir until combined.
  4. Bring mixture to boil and turn down to low. Cover and simmer for about 8 minutes or until tortellini is soft. While pasta is cooking, turn broiler on (optional).
  5. Remove from heat. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan evenly over top.
  6. Place pan in the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.Or, if your skillet is not oven safe,  you could just put the lid back on and let the heat from the pasta melt the cheese.
