One Skillet Dinner – Four Ingredient Tortellini Marinara

You all know how much you love a good home-cooked meal, right? Right. So how much more do you love a home-cooked meal that comes together in only 10 minutes?!

We’re talking 4 ingredients, 1 pot, 10 minutes and dinner is on the table.

So here’s what you’ll need:

  • ½ lb ground beef or turkey (we used turkey)
  • ½ lb Italian sausage (we used hot)
  • Pasta Sauce (we used tomato basil)
  • 1 package of tortellini
  • Parmesan cheese to top (optional)
  • garlic bread (optional)

Here’s what you do:
In a large skillet on medium to high heat, brown your ground meat and sausage together. We like to sprinkle a little garlic powder for taste but that’s totally up to you. Once the meat is about 95% cooked through, add your pasta sauce. We use a half to a quarter of the jar depending on how many are eating – just eyeball it and make sure all the meat is covered in sauce. The meat will continue to cook the rest of the way through. After this, add your uncooked tortellini into the mix. Continue stirring until tortellini are coated with sauce and warmed through. Scoop it out, serve it up. Bam. So easy. So yummy. Dinner is done and you are welcome.
