Recipe: Cheesy Sausage Tortellini

Cold weather makes us all crave warm, rich foods and this recipe is sure to hit the spot. Since it is so rich, we suggest pairing it with a fresh green salad (light on the dressing).

Picture and recipe from kevinandamanda.com
Serves 4


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb smoked turkey sausage
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 c chicken broth
  • 1 c tomato sauce
  • 1/2 c regular cream
  • 9 oz tortellini
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Slice the sausage into inch thick pieces
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just starting to smoke
  3. Add sausage and cook until well browned, about 3-4 minutes per side
  4. Add the minced garlic and stir until golden, about 30 seconds
  5. Add the tomato sauce, cream, tortellini and salt and pepper to the sausage pan
  6. Stir to combine until simmering and bubbly
