{One Pot} Italian Sausage and Tortellini Skillet

I made this last night for the third time. It's a big hit with my family, a quick and easy weeknight meal. Perfect for back to school dinner planning. The entire meal takes 20 minutes, start to finish. Plus there are only five ingredients. It doesn't get much easier than that! The one thing I will probably do next time is lighten it a bit. I will use italian turkey sausage and whole wheat tortellini. I cut the cheeses in half, just sprinkling it lightly over the dish.

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground Italian Sausage
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 240-24 oz package of fresh cheese Tortellini
  • 3 cups spaghetti sauce (1-24 oz jar)
  1. Heat olive oil in an oven safe skillet. Crumble in sausage and cook through, until no longer pink.
  2. Stir in spaghetti sauce and tortellini.
  3. Bring mixture to a boil, turn heat down to low, cover and simmer for about 8 minutes or until tortellini is tender. 
  4. Remove from heat. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan evenly over tortellini.
  5. Place the lid back on and let the cheese melt for about 5 minutes.
