One-Pot Cheesy Tortellini and Sausage


I made this yummy dish last night.  It is very easy to make and not too bad on the pocket book.  Trust me, you want need to make anything else with it, it’s very filling by itself.  We had garlic knots on the side and that was plenty.   Mark got this recipe from Betty Crocker’s web site.


1 lb cooked pork sausage, sliced
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 jar (25.5 oz) Muir Glen organic pasta sauce tomato basil
1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen organic diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup Progresso chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
20 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
6 fresh basil leaves, chopped


  • In 12-inch skillet, cook sliced sausage, onion and garlic 5 to 7 minutes or until onion softens and sausage starts to brown.
  • Stir in sauce, tomatoes, chicken broth and tortellini. Cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tortellini is cooked.
  • Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese and basil. Serve when cheese has melted.
I did not use the Muir Glen brands because I could not find them so I used the Bertolli brand which is really good.  And for the sausage I used a Johnsonville brand of Italian sausage
