Turkey Tortellini Toss

Serves: 4

Garden fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and fresh oregano will have your family coming back for more. I use any kind of leftover meat with this - chicken, sausage, shredded or sliced pork - for a delicious variation each time.

Total Time:


2 cups frozen cheese tortellini (about 8 ounces)
1 pound ground turkey (or any cooked meat)
2 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
1/2 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped finely
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup shredded asiago cheese, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil


Cook tortellini according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook turkey, zucchini and garlic over medium heat 7-9 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink, breaking up turkey into crumbles; drain. (If using cooked meat, add with the tomatoes to heat.). Add tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper flakes; cook 2 minutes longer. Stir in 3/4 cup cheese.

Drain tortellini; add to skillet and toss to combine. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
