Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes and Mushrooms is a quick meal you can make anytime during the week. This is a meatless meal, but you can add sausage, if you prefer. Serve with a salad, rolls and a glass of your favorite beverage. You will be making extra sauce you can freeze and use at a later date. Serves 4 Total Time: 20 minutes 


19oz package of cheese tortellini, cooked according to the package instructions 


2 tablespoons olive oil 

1/2 red onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, smashed 

8-10 large brown mushrooms, sliced

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 can tomato sauce 

1 large can tomatoes 

1 tablespoon each basil, parsley and Italian seasoning 

Salt and pepper, to taste 


In a large saucepan on med/high heat add the olive oil, when hot add the onions until softened then add the garlic and cook until fragrant about 1-2 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and cook until browned. Add in the tomato paste, tomato sauce and the tomatoes. If you are using whole tomatoes cut them in quarters using a knife. Stir and reduce heat to low let simmer for 10 minutes. 

In a large bowl add your cooked tortellini and then pour on enough sauce to cover (about half). Stir to combine. Taste to see if any seasoning is needed. Serve. Freeze remaining sauce.
