Oh, yum. This hearty, tasty, Sausage Tortellini Skillet is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It comes together easily and only uses one pan (hooray for less dishes!), plus it’s filling, comforting, and incorporates veggies in a way that vegetable loves and haters alike will love. Saucy and cheesy with spicy Italian sausage, pillowy cheese tortellini and yummy zucchini and mushrooms? Sign me up!
This recipe is also easy to adapt a bit to taste. Don’t like mushrooms or not a zucchini fan? No worries! Feel free to sub in veggies you prefer (chopped eggplant, bell peppers, whatever you like!). The recipe makes a little over 11 cups, so each serving is a bit more than a cup. I found it to be a very filling main dish for just under 300 calories and I’m sure you will too!
This Sausage Tortellini Skillet is a filling, flavorful one-pan skillet meal that comes together with ease!
1lbuncooked hot Italian turkey or poultry sausage, casings removed if present
1small onion, diced
8ozsliced white mushrooms
2garlic cloves, minced
15ozcan tomato sauce
15ozcan diced tomatoes
2tablespoonssliced fresh basil
1 ½teaspoonsItalian seasoning
1 ½ozParmesan cheese, freshly shredded (I did mine on the smallest holed side of a box grater)
20ozrefrigerated cheese tortellini
1cupshredded 2% Mozzarella cheese
Place the sausage in a large skillet or saute pan over medium heat and cook for a few minutes, breaking apart with a wooden spoon until it starts to brown a bit. Once the meat starts to break apart, add the onion, mushroom, zucchini and garlic and stir together. Continue to cook for about 8 more minutes while breaking up meat and stirring regularly until sausage is cooked through and vegetables are softened.
Add the tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, Parmesan and tortellini and stir until well combined. Cover the pan with a lid and bring heat up until you can see the sauce bubble. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 8 minutes until tortellini is cooked.
Turn off the burner, remove the lid and sprinkle the Mozzarella over the top of the skillet. Place the lid back on the pan and leave it on the warm burner for about 2 minutes until the cheese is melted. Remove the lid and serve.
