  • 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.

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.
