I’ve decided that I really love cheese tortellini…I mean really, REALLY love cheese tortellini! I haven’t made it with beef, yet and tonight’s the night!

Baked Beef Tortellini

Baked Beef Tortellini

Ingredients:
1 – 9 ounce package of refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini (I’m aware there are two packages in the picture, I chose to only use one)
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
6 cloves garlic, minced (I’ve never minced cloves of garlic, so I just used Garlic Powder)
1 – 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 – 10 3/4 ounce can condensed tomato soup
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions:
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Cook tortellini according to package directions, drain. Return to pan, cover and keep warm.
2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook ground beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat.

I wish you could smell things through the internet, because the fragrance coming off this dish is AMAZING!  The Hubs and The Kid gobbled this one up!  I was planning to freeze some leftovers, but there wasn’t any!  So easy and delicious!
