Cheesy Italian Tortellini
Ingredients listed are how our family made this. Original recipe can be found at
1 pound of lean ground beef
1 package of Johnsonville's Sweet Italian Sausage (casings removed)
2 (16 oz) jars of marinara sauce
1 package of sliced mushrooms
1 (14.5 oz) can of Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
2 (9oz) packages of refrigerated or fresh cheese tortellini
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Crumble ground beef and Italian Sausage into a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until browned. Drain.
Combine ground meats, marinara sauce, mushrooms, and tomatoes in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 7 to 8 hours.
Stir in tortellini and sprinkle mozzarella and cheddar cheese over the top. Cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes on LOW or until tortellini is tender.
**This meal was prepared for my clan of 6 (Eli doesn't eat solids yet), with the intent of having leftovers. For a smaller portion, cut all ingredients in half.
**For a make ahead, prepare all ingredients for sauce mixture and vacuum seal in a bag. Toss in slow cooker on the day of.
