How to make Tortellini Casserole

Tortellini Casserole is so simple to make on any night of the week. Frozen tortellini, ground sausage, your favorite pasta sauce, and cheese make this simple tortellini casserole a family favorite.

Preheat oven to 400F. Start by browning your ground sausage in a large skillet. When sausage is browned and cooked through, remove from skillet and set aside. Add pasta sauce and alfredo sauce to the large skillet and stir to mix well.

Next, add cooked ground sausage and frozen tortellini to the skillet of pasta sauce. Stir to combine.

Lightly grease a 9×13 casserole dish and add half of the cheese tortellini. Top with half of the shredded mozzarella cheese, then add the rest of the cheese tortellini. Finish by topping it with the remaining shredded cheese. Spray a large piece of tin foil with non-stick spray and cover tortellini casserole. Place in a preheated 400F oven for 30 minutes. Remove tin foil and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes.

Serve Tortellini Casserole with baked garlic bread and a fresh green salad. Enjoy

Tips for Tortellini Casserole

  • If your not a fan of sausage, you can substitute it with ground beef. If you do so, add salt and pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste.
  • Tortellini Casserole is a great freezer meal. Follow the recipe but just don’t bake it. Cover with foil and freeze. When you are ready to bake, remove from freezer and add an additional 20 minutes to the baking time or until heated through.
