Italian Sausage & Tortellini Skillet
So somehow I blinked and had 2 kids in school and between the 2 of them, they have 6 after school activities. Holy moly. We have been embracing the slow cooker (Click here for my slow cooker recipe arsenal) and easy 1 pot meals more than ever! While I was browsing pinterest during basketball practice, (Mother of the year), I found this One Pot Italian Sausage & Tortellini Skillet and knew it would be a hit at our house. It was so easy and good! Loved the easy clean up too!
Italian Sausage & Tortellini Skillet (adapted recipe source)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb Sweet Italian Sausage, casings removed
25 oz jar marinara sauce
1/2 cup water
24 oz package of refrigerated cheese Tortellini (I couldn’t find a 24 oz package, so I got 2 (12 oz) packages)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh basil if desired
Heat oil in a large, oven safe skillet. Crumble sausage & cook until no longer pink. Stir in water, marinara, Italian seasoning and tortellini.
Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Turn broiler on while pasta is cooking.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with mozzarella & parmesan. Place pan under the broiler for a minute or 2 until cheese is melted. (watch it closely!)
Garnish with fresh basil if desired, serve and enjoy!
