Day 347: Cheesy Tortellini

1/2 lb ground beef, browned and drained

1/2 lb smoked sausage, sliced
1 (16 oz) can of marinara sauce
1 (4 oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained
1 (14 oz) can Italian-style tomatoes, undrained
9 oz frozen cheese-filled tortellini
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Combine beef and sausage, marinara sauce, mushrooms, and tomatoes in slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours. Add tortellini and cheese and stir. Cover and cook on HIGH for another hour or until tortellini are cooked through. Makes 6 servings.

This tortellini recipe is similar to the Cheesy Italian Tortellini. It has a slightly different flavor with the smoked sausage. My kids loved it and was perfect to make with the leftover tortellini I had from the Italian Tortellini Soup. 3 stars


  1. I am going to try this soon! With maybe a little twist so I can use what I have on hand. This sounds yummy!

  2. Seeing that I'm Italian this dish looks amazing. lol. I think I'll make this dish tomorrow (Sunday) and not tonight because I still need to get the marinara sauce.
