As much as I enjoy chicken, I can only eat it a few nights a week without getting tired of it. Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage is a great alternative. Sausage & Tortellini in a Creamy Red Sauce makes for an easy and quick weeknight meal.
One Pot Meal: Sausage and Tortellini in a Creamy Red Sauce
- 1 pkg Hillshire Smoked Sausage
- 1/2 tsp garlic minced
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 19 oz. pkg frozen tortellini
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 1 can peas optional
Slice sausage into bite-sized pieces.
In a large skillet, brown the sausage with the garlic for about 10 minutes.
Add vegetable broth, tomato sauce, heavy whipping cream, tortellini, salt and pepper.
Simmer 10-15 minutes, or until the tortellini is cooked completely.
Serve and ENJOY!
If you let the dish sit for about 10 minutes after it’s cooked, the sauce will thicken up nicely!
My husband and I really enjoyed our Sausage & Tortellini in a creamy red sauce! Hillshire Smoked Sausage adds a depth of flavor that you don’t get with other meat options. My kids said they didn’t love the sauce, but they ate it.
