Quick Skillet Tortellini
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 lb bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) marinara sauce
  • 1½ cup water
  • 1 package (20 oz.) fresh tortellini
  • 5 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  1. To begin, saute the Italian sausage until browned. Drain off any excess grease if you need to.
  2. Pour in the marinara sauce, along with the water. (I recommend putting the water in your jar, giving it a quick shake and then pouring it into the skillet. That way you get every last drop of sauce out of the jar.)
  3. Add in the fresh tortellini. Stir this all together and bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the tortellini is just cooked. Stir it occasionally. While it cooks, shred the mozzarella cheese.
  4. When the tortellini is just cooked, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Let it sit for a minute or two, just until the cheese is melted. That’s it!
  5. Enjoy this simple meal.
