Delicious Italian tortellini dish will have you coming back for seconds.
Dave was right in describing his recipe. We did come back for seconds. We loved it. My changes were minimal. I used Johnsonville Italian sausage so I didn’t need to drain the grease, and I used two large fresh garlic cloves finely minced, sautéing them in just before I added the tomatoes and sauce. My husband has already requested I make it again. Thanks Dave!Read More

Found this recipe when I was in search of something to do with the Italian sausages I had sitting in my fridge. This was great! I enjoyed having the sausage in the sauce instead of your typical beef sauce. It gave it a nice flavor. I baked half the batch to eat and I froze the remaining half for a future dinner. It was so good!
I used ground turkey and ground italian sausage, loved it. Also used a regular diced tomatoe. Remember that the frozen tortellini expands, one bag should be enough.
My six year old decided he wanted to make dinner "all by himself," and he and I poked around the Allrecipes website until we agreed on this recipe. I subbed in a bag of frozen bell peppers and onions, so he wouldn't have to cut anything, and the bag of tortellini we used was larger than 9 oz...16 oz maybe? Anyway, we used the whole thing. It came out really well, everyone ate a ton, and my six year old thinks he's the chef of the year. Thanks for the recipe.
I did not simmer the sauce or pre boil the tortellini and it was fantastic!!
Very good recipe! I was looking for a new way to do some tortellini and I thought a bake would be good! I changed this up A LOT actually but same basic concept. I'm from east Texas so I put some of my natural flavoring to it and actually used deer meat that I marinated in Pinot noir and balsamic. Also added black olives right before I put it in the pan to bake. Turned out amazing though! The black olives are a great touch! Good recipe though!!
This was yummy!!!But I had more sauce on mine then it shows in the pic...Next time I wont to try to make it with less sauce to see if I prefer that instead but knowing me I will like it with more sauce...Thanks for the recipe!!!
For a family of five and Feeding 5 kids (2 who were guest) can be a challenge for picky eaters. I always have left overs!! Wanted to try something different than the traditional spaghetti. Found this recipe hoping the kids would like it. The only change I made was I used Sweet Italian sausage patties (fresh) as it was my first time making it, and I did have Italian garlic bread. Wouldn't you know it! 2nds and 3rds!! No left overs!! It was a hit and something different!! Will make again!
I simplified the recipe by using a jar of chunky tomato pasta sauce with garlic and onions already in it. I used Shady Brook Farm's Hot Italian Turkey Sausage which is took out of the casing and broke up as I browned it. Then I added the pasta sauce. I used one pound of frozen cheese tortellini cooked according to the instructions on the package. Those three ingredients were combined and poured into the baking pan. About one and a half cups of shredded mozzarella were used - two just seemed like too much to me. I baked as directed in the original recipe and it came out great! My husband really liked it, too. I will definitely make this again.
We enjoyed this! Only did half meat for wee ones are picky! Everyone liked !
Delicious!!! Made this a few nights ago and my family and I loved it! I made a few adjustments but only because of our families personal taste preferences. I added half of a small can of tomato paste to the tomato mixture, used half an onion, and used fresh mozzarella pearls mixed in with the mixture prior to topping it with shredded mozzarella and baking. Was phenomenal!
No green pepper here, don't care for it. Used minced garlic and omitted the garlic powder. Otherwise made this as written. A good quick meal that satisfied us. Will make this one again.
My family absolutely loved the dish. The sauce is rich and full of flavor...yummy. Definitely an addition to our meals from now on.
This was very good!! My picky son and husband loved it! I did make a few changes. Instead of bulk sausage I used mild Italian sausage links. I boiled them first (10 min) then put them in the frying pan. Once done I removed the casing and cut them up and put the onion and green pepper in and went from there. At cooking time I covered the baking dish with foil for 20 min then uncovered it and cooked for 5 more min. It was Perfect, the cheese was melted perfectly!! Will def be making again :) yummy
This was not a food "revelation," but my whole family liked it, so that's a huge bonus for me. The only thing I changed was the tortellini cook time in the pot. I only cooked them for about 3 minutes in a rolling boil, and let the sauce in the oven do the rest.
used 32 oz sauce, basil, oregano, italian seasoning. split in two pans (froze one). Delicious!
It was so good but I did add garlic to my spicy Italian sausage mixture; and I let it simmer for about 20 minutes but served it with a salad and some Parmesan cheese and garlic bread... Didn't have no leftovers... I will be making it again.
Yes, I will make it again. Family loved it!
Made this once before and it was a big hit, now I’m catering this recipe for my brother’s get together. For sure. A great hit with anyone, only change I made this time is half is made with sausage the other half no meat because he has non meat eating guests, hence the aluminum foil barrier in the middle.
Just finished making this dish for dinner tonight. It was a hit! I didn't change a thing, just added pepper for that extra lil burn, I used the mild Italian sausage. The whole family loves this. Thanks for posting this recipe. It will surely be added to our dinner rotation.
This was decent.
Delicious, quick and easy to fix!
Made this tonight exactly per the recipe. It was delicious and easy.
I left it in the oven for too long and the cheese got a little too dark, but overall it was a good meal. I will be making it again.????
this was good. I layered the dish like someone else said and added extra cheese.
Tasted far better than expected, definitely a good recipe and not horribly difficult to make for beginners
Delicious add more onion and garlic for added flavour.
Thank you for the recipe. It turned out nicely and tasted great !
Requested again in less than 1 week,family loved it.
Excellent,next time will use more tortellini
My grandsons said they'd like tortellini for dinner so I found this recipe. Huge hit with everyone and will become a family favorite.
I had 24 oz of tortellini so I just doubled everything. I also added mushrooms because we love them.Added some red pepper flakes as we like a little heat. Was great heated up the next day.
i subbed a sweet red pepper for green and arrabiata sauce for marinara. Very tasty. Definitely "seconds" !
Great flavor and taste. It seems kinda like a thick sauce with meat in it though. We bought the 50 cent bread from Jimmy John's and put it on that and it was delicious!
This was amazing both my wife and I loved it and will be making it again.
Turkey Sausage instead of Pork
This dish was truly TASTY! The recipe was easy to follow and my entire family enjoyed. Thanks for a new quick and easy go to.
I increased the amount of tortellini, and reduced the amount of sausage, and it worked fine.
EXCELLENT! Easy to make. I added some cooked spinach, chopped up some garlic and some Italian seasoning. Everyone in the house loved this! Comfort food at its best. Thank You for a solid go-to recipe!
Instead of garlic powder, I added 2 garlic cloves crushed. Also added fresh mushrooms. Delicious!! My family LOVED IT! I
No changes. Made as written. Very good.
I just wasn't impressed.
This is becoming a regular dish I cook at home, and it's one of my husband's favorites. I usually add some additional spices, like salt/pepper, Italian seasoning, and fennel seed. This is a great recipe! Thanks!
We loved this so much I am fixing it again a week later.
Delicious and easy to make, will definitely make it again!
Made this exactly as written! Very good and my husband loved it! He ate a second helping.
Followed recipes and it was delicious!!!
This was great recipe!! Will make again. Nice dish to switch things up alittle bit.
I used prego 4 cheese and basil pasta sauce and a whole pound of frozen tortellini. Didn't cook the tort ahead. Also added some dry sage, mustard, and garlic powder to sauce. Baked for 20 minutes and then added cheese for last 10 since I hate overcooked cheese. Would definitely make again.
I used hot Italian sausage and my husband loved this dish! I am not a fan of Italian foods, but it looked and smelled delicious. I followed the recipe to a "T" and it was a hit.
Delicious! Only change I made was adding a packet of Italian dressing mix instead of garlic.
This was delicious. It’s simple and I made it exactly as the recipe says. The whole family loved it. Definitely will make it again.
Simple to make and the kids loved it, so it’s a win-win recipe for me! I did add more sauce, but that’s the only thing I did differently.
Very good. Used a sprinkle of fennel seeds with the onion, not having any fennel available, and penne instead of rigatoni for the same reason. It turned out well. Will make it again.
I loved this! I made changes out of ease and personal preference. I used Prego sauce instead of tomatoes. I skipped the bell pepper and added minced garlic. Very delicious! I'm making it again tonight!
I liked it, but my husband and daughter thought it wasn't that great.
This is now my family's #1 Dish! This dish was soooo good!!! I did add some beef as well as the Italian sausage which worked well. I cooked the dish on Mother's day and my family was asking when was I going to make it again! I did make it four days later and it was still delicious! I wonder how mushrooms will work with it?
We loved this recipe. I used sliced grilled sausage and added a little oregano and Italian seasonings. Highly recommend.
I followed the instructions very closely with ingredients I had on hand. I used spicy Johnsonville sausage & spinach & cheese stuffed tortellini. I did place the casserole under the broiler for a few minutes at the end which resulted in a slightly crunchy top. This recipe is easy, versatile as far as ingredients, & absolutely delicious. I baked half of the mixture and froze the rest to use for a quick dinner in the future.
Just perfect and filling....absolutely delicious!
Absolutely Wonderful!! While preparing I thought it was to much green pepper, but it was actually perfect! Also made a salad, and 4cheese garlic bread with it! What a great dinner:)
I added a lot of fresh tomatoes, a few smaller onions and a large pepper from my garden plus the ingredients listed. It was delish.
I used 1/2 lb. mild italian sausage and 1/2 lb. spicy italian sausage and used Imo's Pizza Provel cheese instead of mozarella. Delicious!
Giving this 5 stars for creativity. Not sure tortellini is the right noodle for a baked dish, but plenty of good ideas in this recipe to improvise with.
Made as noted but used entire 19 oz bag frozen tortellini which seem the right ratio to me. Excellent dish.
My kids loved this one. They want leftovers tomorrow
Delicious and easy!!
Definitely a hit! The boyfriend loved it. Says tortellini is his favorite now. Next time I may chop the tomatoes a little smaller or cook longer to break them down more. Probably will do two alternationing layers of meat mixture and mozzarella cheese instead of too much on top. Flavors were fantastic though!
a super recipe indeed!! The pop of cheesy flavor from the tortellini in combination with the flavorful sauce is a hit! I used a combination of sweet and spicy Italian sausages from the but her! I will make this again!! Thank you for the recipe!!
This bake is very good. I skipped the green pepper and the garlic powder and used a big garlic clove instead. It was very good. I made half the recipe so I would say it might need a tid bit more than 4.5 oz of tortellini to balance the sauce/tortellini ratio.
It's a KEEPER in our house. Sometimes I add a little more tortellini to the recipe because 9 ounces is not enough.
Made this recipe! Used ravioli instead and meatballs added lots of mushrooms and it worked just fine! Versatile...you can put other things in you may have in your fridge or freezer.
I made this a few times already :) the first time I made it as the recipe said to and the sausage I used had a spice to it so my daughter wasn't a fan but the rest of my family loved it! So the next time I followed the recipe again except I used maple sausage. And everyone loved it once again! Except this time so did my daughter :) great recipe. I have added this to our family favorites!
My absolute favorite recipe I have come across! Never have any complaints with this one. I use the Italian sausage filled tortellini and sometimes I add in pepperoni, other than that I follow the recipe as is. This really is an amazing dish :)
ya, I'm usually modest when I make my dinners, but this was sooo good!! I didn't have the diced tomatoes and had a red pepper instead of green, but yum yum!
Was looking for a new recipie for a picky family, made exactly as written, and it was a big hit. This will definitely go on the regular menu planner. Thanks for a great, easy to make recipie!
This was great! Made it almost as written. I used Barilla 3 cheese tortellini bc I couldn't find frozen tortellini, I just cooked that according to the pasta package and then mixed it in. I also didn't use all the marinara, but I would next time. Its important to let the marinara, peppers and onions simmer together to reduce water content. DONT SKIP that, but if you don't have time, just add less marinara sauce and I think it would compensate. This was delicious. My kids loved it, hubs loved it. Great recipe.
Turned out perfect.. added Italian seasoning to the meat as it was cooking.. also added key west seasoning to spice it up. But the timing was right on. Used turkey Italian sausage.
Used tortellini - came out great
My husband and I liked this, but I used hot breakfast sausage and added more tortellini.
We aren't big green pepper fans so I left that out and added fresh crushed garlic. Delicious! Even my 4 and 1 year olds were downing it which is always a huge win! Thanks!
This was delicious! I used Italian Sausage Tortellini that also included mozzarella, parmesan, swiss and provolone cheese filling. Fantastic!
This was sooooo good. I had some leftover spaghetti sauce, so just added a can of Italian diced tomatoes and only half onion and bell pepper and it was perfect flavor. Made enough so we have another note to enjoy!!
This was delicious!
This is a pretty quick and easy recipe that is also tasty.
Tasty! I didn't really have to change anything, though I did use the Johnsonville sausage as well. Just what was available to me.
i increased the amount of tortellini to 16oz as per another reviewer's suggestion. I also omitted the green bell peppers and added minced garlic in its place.
What a delicious and easy recipe. The whole family enjoyed it, and yes, they had seconds.
SECONDS AND THIRDS AND FOURTHS
Amazing flavor! One of the few new dishes I’ve tried recently that the whole family went back for seconds on!! It’s a definite recommend ??
It was pretty good. Didn't feel that much different from a regular baked ziti type dish, but it was good.
It turned out absolutely delicious the entire family liked it, including the picky eaters. I added a few extra seasonings to the meat peppers and onions mixture mainly Italian seasonings and cayenne pepper. Next time i think i may add some half and half or whipping cream only to make the sauce thicken a bit more and become a lil creamy under the cheese top.
We really enjoyed this simple dish. Easy and good. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
New family favorite!
This recipe was delicious.... my family loved it and can't wait for me to make it again!m
The one change for us was using Italian turkey sausage. I buy a favorite marinara sauce & used Delmontes diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano. I love a recipe that actually makes the amount advertised. By taking the time to cook the sauce down the flavors were intense. I served this with a small salad & garlic bread. There are just 2 of us & this serves 6 easily. Will have a second meal In a couple of days. Hate to freeze this as I don't want it watery. This is definitely a keeper for a larger crowd.
Easy and Delicious! This has become one of our favorites!
I loved this recipe so much that I made a double batch the next week to make freezer meals out of it! My husband and both of my picky kids loved it too!
