One Skillet Tortellini Marinara

This weeknight-friendly meal is easy to prepare and even easier to clean up.  There’s no precooking. No long cook times. And dinner will be on your table in less than 20 minutes. Guaranteed!

Just add marinara sauce, water and uncooked tortellini directly to your skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook for 9 to 11 minutes. Bam! It’s really that easy!  To boost nutrition, stir in 2 cups of fresh spinach. I do this to nearly all my pasta dishes!

Here’s the recipe for One Skillet Tortellini Marinara.

Ingredients for 4 servings, about 1 cup each:

1 container (15 ounces) BUITONI® Refrigerated Marinara Sauce 

1 package (9 ounces) BUITONI® Refrigerated Three Cheese Tortellini 

1 ¼ cups water (can substitute ¼ cup white wine for ¼ cup of water)

2 cups fresh spinach leaves

PLACE sauce, pasta and water in large skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook for 9 to 11 minutes or until pasta is tender.

STIR in spinach. Serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Now if you want to kick it up a little, here’s an additional take on this one-skillet wonder.

In this One Skillet Sausage & Marinara Tortelloni recipe, turkey sausage is browned first, and then we added marinara sauce, water, a little wine and tortelloni. Same concept as above, with just a couple additional ingredients…and it’s still on your table in just about 20 minutes.

Bon Appetit!
