Served with a side salad, this is a low-fuss, tasty meal.
- 1 22oz package cheese tortellini
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 an onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- Italian seasoning, per taste
- S & P, per taste
- Crushed red pepper, optional
- 1 26oz jar spaghetti sauce
- 1 8oz block of mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
In a large pot, bring salted water to boil. Boil tortellini per package instructions. (I usually have a package of tortellini in the freezer so I boil for longer, 5-7 minutes.)
Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the meat along with the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, S&P, & crushed red pepper flakes. Drain grease, as needed. Stir in jar of spaghetti sauce.
Drain the tortellini & return to pot, add the meat sauce, carefully stir to combine. Once thoroughly incorporated, transfer to pan & top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, sprinkle with parsley. Enjoy.
