Tortellini are a fun and delicious way to mix up your usual pasta dishes. Store bought versions work perfectly, in my opinion, but if you are a tortellini connoisseur, then knock yourself out with homemade! As for me, I will stick with the ones that I find in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. I can then toss them in my freezer for when I need some cheesy pasta in a flash. They are quick to cook in a pot of boiling water, and then perfect to toss with sauce, sautéd turkey sausage, broccoli and loads of melty mozzarella cheese.

  • Author: KJ & Company – Kate Poskochil
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 13 oz smoked turkey sausage, cut into 1/2 inch disks
  • 4 cups broccoli florets, about an inch in size each
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 20 oz package cheese tortellini
  • 32 oz (4 cups) Epic Tomato Soup Sauce, or jarred sauce of choice
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large, oven-proof skillet. Add the turkey sausage and sauté for about 5 minutes or until they start to turn slightly golden brown, making sure to turn them over halfway through. Add in the broccoli florets and chopped garlic and stir to combine. Sauté for another 10-15 minutes, or until the broccoli florets and turkey sausage are sautéd nicely with some golden brown markings. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large pot of boiling water over high heat and cook the cheese tortellini according to package instructions. Drain the tortellini and add them into the skillet with the turkey sausage and broccoli. Pour the tomato sauce over all of the ingredients in the skillet and toss to coat completely. Stir in 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1 cup of the parmesan cheese. 
  3. Make the top an even surface and top the tortellini bake with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese until completely coated. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and starting to turn slightly golden brown on top. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you don’t have a large, oven-proof skillet, you could easily transfer the tortellini bake into a 9×13 baking pan prior to topping it with cheese and baking it.
