3 packages Villa Ravioli cheese tortellini (12 oz. each)

2 jars alfredo sauce

1 lb. chorizo

1/2 sweet onion

shredded pepper jack cheese

  1.  Brown chorizo and chopped onion in a skillet.
  2. Meanwhile, cook tortellini according to package direction.
  3. Drain meat and mix in alfredo sauce.
  4. Combine with cooked, drained tortellini and pour into a 13 x 9 baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bake at 425 for 15 or 20 minutes until cheese melts.

If you make it ahead and refrigerate or freeze it, I would lower the temperature, cook longer, cover with foil for a while and put the shredded cheese on top at the very end.  I did mine this way because I was in a hurry.  From start to finish, this took less than 45 minutes.

This was a hit.  So many variations and add-ins would make for a great dinner – Any type of ravioli or tortellini, any type of sauce, any type of meat, any type of cheese!  Add in zucchini or yellow squash, peppers, beans – you get the idea!!!
