Venison Tortellini Lasagna is a mix of ground venison, spices, tortellini and red sauce. Oh, and let’s not forget the cheesy goodness. I’d like to repeat what my oldest son, Chase, said about this recipe, but I’m a lady and try to not talk like that so I’ll have to edit the bad words with bleeps.
He said, “That’s the best “bleeping” “bleep” ever! You need to “bleeping” fix this “bleep” more often…at least once a week. Ummm, “bleep” that’s good!” So, now that you know what he said about it, you should know it’s good because he almost never comments on anything I fix for dinner.
Feel free to print our recipe card:
This goes great with a salad and/or garlic bread and it’s good reheated, so if you have any leftovers this would be great for lunch the next day.
The good, the bad and the delicious…
- Venison Tortellini Lasagna is not very high in calories, has fiber and loads of protein, and has calcium, iron, and vitamin A.
- It’s also high in fat, sodium, and cholesterol.
