A few months ago the all natural smoked sausage I buy was on sale for super cheap so I bought a ton and put it in the freezer. I searched for and tried some recipes from Pinterest to make me finally get around to using it. Here are three recipes I tried and enjoyed. They are super simple, easy to throw together, and yummy.
3. Cheesy Sausage Tortellini
Recipe from HERE
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb smoked turkey sausage
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 cup tomato sauce (or your favorite spaghetti sauce)
1/2 cup regular or heavy cream
9 oz tortellini
salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just starting to smoke. Add sausage and cook until well browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Add garlic and stir until golden and fragrant, about 30 seconds.
2. Add both, tomato sauce, cream, tortellini, and salt and pepper and stir to combine until simmering and bubbly.
3. Cover and simmer over low heat for 12 minutes until tortellini are tender and heated through. Enjoy!! :)
