  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Crumble sausage into the saucepan; add onion and green bell pepper. Cook and stir the sausage mixture until the sausage is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain grease.
  2. Pour marinara sauce and diced tomatoes over the sausage mixture; season with garlic powder and stir. Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the diced tomatoes break down into the sauce, 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the frozen tortellini at a boil until they float to the top and the filling is hot, 6 to 7 minutes; drain.
  5. Gently fold the cooked tortellini into the simmering sauce; cook together another 5 minutes. Pour tortellini and sauce into a 13x9-inch baking dish; top with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until cheese is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

Dave was right in describing his recipe. We did come back for seconds. We loved it. My changes were minimal. I used Johnsonville Italian sausage so I didn’t need to drain the grease, and I used two large fresh garlic cloves finely minced, sautéing them in just before I added the tomatoes and sauce. My husband has already requested I make it again. Thanks Dave!

This was decent.

Found this recipe when I was in search of something to do with the Italian sausages I had sitting in my fridge. This was great! I enjoyed having the sausage in the sauce instead of your typical beef sauce. It gave it a nice flavor. I baked half the batch to eat and I froze the remaining half for a future dinner. It was so good!

I used ground turkey and ground italian sausage, loved it. Also used a regular diced tomatoe. Remember that the frozen tortellini expands, one bag should be enough.
