Italian Sausage Tortellini Recipe

Recipe By: Garrett Heintz

“Tons of flavor in this tortellini with Italian sausage! Your family will love this!”


– 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
– 1 (8 ounce) package baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
– 1 cup dry white wine (such as Pinot Grigio), divided
– 3 cloves garlic, minced, divided
– 10 ounces mild Italian sausage, casings removed
– 1 (16 ounce) package three-cheese tortellini
– 14 1/2 ounces basil pesto sauce (such as Prego(R))
– 1 (5 ounce) package baby spinach leaves


Heat butter in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms, 1/2 cup white wine, and 1 clove minced garlic until liquid has reduced and mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place in a bowl.

Heat the same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir Italian sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes, dividing it into bite-sized portions while stirring. Remove excess grease by placing paper towels onto a plate and dumping browned sausage onto it to drain. Return sausage to the skillet.

Return cooked mushrooms back to the skillet with sausage and add tortellini, basil pesto sauce, remaining 1/2 cup white wine, and remaining garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes more. Mix well to combine. Remove from heat and serve.
