Cheesy Sausage Tortellini Skillet - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Cheesy Sausage Tortellini Skillet recipe quickly became a favorite at my house.  It is so fast and easy to make on top of the stove.  I can make a meal of this alone but add a salad and bread for a great meal for family and friends. If you like pasta, you will love this dish. Most men really go for it because it is filling and great comfort food.

Cheesy Sausage Tortellini Skillet

 

1 pound pork sausage

1 medium onion,  chopped

1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 clove of garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon basil

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Pinch cayenne or a few drops hot sauce, Optional

1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes in puree

1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained

3 cups refrigerated 3 cheese tortellini (I use Brutoni Three Cheese Tortellini), uncooked

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Chopped fresh parsley for garnish, Optional

Brown the sausage with the onion, green pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, black pepper, salt and cayenne in a large skillet.  Add the crushed tomatoes and green chilis. Add tortellini and stir well. Turn heat to simmer, cover skillet and let cook 25 minutes or until pasta is done. Remove skillet from heat, sprinkle on the mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Cover until cheese melts. Garnish with fresh parsley.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  This is good reheated in the microwave and will keep for several days in the refrigerator.  I have not tried freezing it but would think you could with no problem. You could also cut this recipe in half.
