One pan meals are huge right now. No one likes to spend hours cleaning up the kitchen after spending time cooking dinner, right? This meal though? I would happily wash a whole lot of pots and pans to eat this sausage and tortellini skillet again.

Lucky for both of us, this deliciousness cooks up in a single skillet, making cleanup a breeze.

What Is Tortellini​


Tortellini is a fun little pasta. Similar to ravioli, tortellini is typically filled with cheese, vegetables, or meat.

Most commonly found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, it might also be found in the freezer, or sometimes with the dried pasta as well. (This particular recipe is written for the most commonly used refrigerated style of tortellini pasta.)

How To Cook Tortellini​


Tortellini can be boiled like dried pasta, simmered with a sauce in a pan, or sautéed on the stove. Tortellini can even be baked.

My boys have been on quite a tortellini kick lately, requesting it almost every time I’m meal planning.

Sausage Tortellini​


I made this Sausage Tortellini Skillet for a super-fast late-night dinner and Sean asked if it was already on the blog. I knew it wasn’t, but I didn’t realize that I didn’t have a single tortellini pasta recipe on the website.

How is that even possible? Keep an eye out for a few more of our favorites in the next few months. I started this blog years ago to save my family’s favorite recipes in one handy place, so these recipes all need to be here too!

Sausage Tortellini Skillet is a quick and easy family dinner.

Sausage Tortellini Recipe​

  1. Cook and crumble the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the sausage has almost browned, add the onion and garlic. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes until the garlic is fragrant and the onion begins to soften.
  2. Add the tomatoes and the tortellini to the skillet. Stir and reduce heat once the sauce comes to a simmer. Cover with lid and simmer softly until the tortellini is tender about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add the spinach and stir for 1-2 minutes until it wilts. Stir in the cream. Sprinkle each serving with cheese if desired.
