    A quick & easy meal that cooks all in one pot!


    • 1 pound ground Italian Sausage
    • 1 (20 oz) package of fresh cheese Tortellini
    • 3 cups spaghetti sauce (1 24 oz jar)
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
    • 1 1/2 cups freshly shredded Mozzarella cheese
    • 1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
    • Fresh chopped parsley or basil for garnish (optional)


    1. Heat an oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble in sausage and cook through, until no longer pink. Drain off some of the fat, if necessary.
    2. Stir in spaghetti sauce, water, Italian seasoning water, 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. You could also simmer with the lid off, but you'll want to keep stirring it with this method.
    4. Remove from heat. Sprinkle Mozzarella and Parmesan evenly over tortellini. Cover for about 5 minutes until cheeses are melted. Alternatively, you could place pan under the broiler in your oven on low for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly (preferred method).
    5. Garnish with fresh parsley or basil, if desired.
