Cheesy Tortellini Bake with Turkey Sausage & Broccoli

Cheesy Tortellini Bake with Turkey Sausage & Broccoli is the comfort food dish that you don’t feel guilty indulging in! Yes, it’s loaded with cheesy tortellini and gooey mozzarella cheese, but the sautéd turkey sausage and broccoli florets balance it out! Pulling this cheesy, bubbling tortellini bake out of the oven will make all of your comfort dinner dreams come true.

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.

Whether you’re looking for a cozy weeknight meal, a bubbly date night masterpiece or meal prepping for the week, this Cheesy Tortellini Bake with Turkey Sausage and Broccoli is one for the books!

My Epic Tomato Soup Sauce works perfectly as the sauce for this dish, but if you don’t have time to make your own sauce, then your favorite jarred sauce works great as well!
