Quick and easy, cheesy tortellini and sausage bake is a delicious 30-minute dinner packed with flavour. A family-favourite comfort food for busy weeknights.
- 1 package (9 oz.) cheese tortellini
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 lb. Italian sausage
- 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
- 3 cups (24 oz.) tomato sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium high heat. Add tortellini and cook according to package directions, about 8-10 minutes. Drain with a colander, and set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet (or oven safe skillet) for 2 minutes over medium-high heat until the hot oil sizzles and shimmers. Add sausage and cook for 5-7 minutes until browned. Break the sausages into small pieces using a spatula.
- Add onions and sauté until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir well to combine.
- Add in tomato sauce, parsley, salt and pepper. Stir well to mix and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat down to low, and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
- Add in the cooked tortellini and stir well to fully coat it in sauce. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan evenly on top of the tortellini.
- Transfer the skillet into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cheese melts and turns golden brown. Remove from oven, and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
- Garnish with extra parsley and Parmesan cheese on top.
