How to Make Tik Tok Cheesy Tortellini
Making this pasta is very quick and easy.
First, cook the ground beef in a large skillet. I like to use this meat chopper to easily break up the meat. I also like to remove excess grease by sopping it up with a paper towel. My mom taught me that trick.
Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the tortellini, to the pan to create a rich and creamy tomato sauce. Simmer for about 5-8 minutes until all of the cheese is melted.
Cook your tortellini according to the package instructions and add it to the sauce. Stir everything up, ladle into bowls, and serve. This dish would be great with some fresh grated parmesan, black pepper, or fresh basil on top.
