Cheesy Sausage Tortellini

I will start by apologizing for not having as many step by step pictures as i like to have. I was hungry and i kept forgetting to take pictures…hahaha… good excuse right? 🙂

To make this yummlicious perfect winter dish, i used Kevin and Amanda’s recipe. They have a lot of other great recipes which i intend to make soon! The recipe called for a 9oz bag of tortellini, but the 9oz bag looked very tiny so i bought a 16 oz bag instead and then modified the rest of the ingredients a little bit.

Ohh and guess what?…..You only need to use one pot for this recipe.. Whoaaaaaaaaa to less dishes that need to be washed.


    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 lb smoked turkey sausage
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 3/4 cup chicken broth ( i used about 1 cup)
    • 1 cup tomato sauce or your favorite spaghetti sauce (i used spaghetti sauce and added an extra 1/4 cup)
    • 1/2 cup regular or heavy cream (i added an extra tablespoon or two)
    • 9 oz tortellini (used a 16oz bag)
    • salt and pepper to taste

Cook the sausage and then add garlic… If i wasn’t hungry and running out of patience, i would have let the sausage brown a little more

WARNING….You will go for a second and third plate until the pot is empty. That’s how good this was!! I think it’s now one of my favorite winter dishes.
