Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, microwave meatballs in a large bowl until hot, according to package instructions. Add pasta sauce to bowl, cover with plastic and continue to microwave until sauce is hot, about 3 more minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the tortellini according to package instructions. About halfway through the cooking time, add broccoli rabe to the water. Continue to cook until tortellini are done and broccoli rabe is tender -- about 3 minutes. Drain.
Toss tortellini and broccoli rabe with the meatballs, sauce, and basil.
Top with cheese and serve.
