This is one the easiest recipes you’ll ever make yet it tastes exactly like a dish from a great Italian restaurant! It’s just that good! I love this one- skillet pasta meal and I make it often. Delicious tender tortellini filled with cheese and sausage and tons of melted cheese, served in a thick and chunky tomato sauce and served with a side salad and crusty bread. Even sounds like something on the menu!
Tortellini and Cheese Skillet Meal
1 pound ground ground beef
2 cloves of minced garlic
9 ounce bag of fresh cheese Tortellini
9 ounce bag of fresh sausage Tortellini
1 (24 oz) jar Ragu Chunky Tomato, Garlic, Onion Sauce
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Heat an oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble in ground beef and cook through, until no longer pink. Add in minced garlic and saute until tender. Stir in spaghetti sauce, water, Italian seasoning, and both bags of tortellini.
Bring mixture to a boil and then turn the heat down to low and cover. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes or until the tortellini is tender.
Remove from heat. Sprinkle Mozzarella and Parmesan evenly over tortellini.
Place skillet in the oven for about 5 minutes until cheese is hot and bubbly. Garnish with fresh parsley or basil, if desired.
Serve with a side salad and some crusty Italian bread. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. This only gets better each day!
NOTE: You can use any type of Tortellini you like. I like mixing both the cheese and sausage because it changes the texture.
