Tortellini Skillet Lasagna

Original posting can be found right here.



1 lb turkey Italian sausage (I actually used regular)

24-oz jar of Marinara

19-oz bag of frozen cheese tortellini

1 egg

15-oz  ricotta cheese

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 cup mozzarella

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper



Heat a skillet over medium heat.

Cook sausage until browned and cooked through.

Add sauce and reduce heat.

Add tortellini and cook 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine egg, ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper.

Drop cheese mixture into sauce, cover, and cook an additional 3-5 minutes or until slightly melted.




Either there is a direction point missing to boil the tortellini before putting in skillet or using dry tortellini made all the difference.  After a solid 45 minutes to an hour, the sauce was burnt and the tortellini was hard.  Completely inedible.  Next time – either boiling raw tortellini or using frozen as directed.  I’d like to give it another try at some point though.
