New Recipe: Tortellini and Sausage in a Tomato Cream Sauce

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
A few weeks back we had a bit of a cold spell when it was damp and rainy so I was on the hunt for a warm home cooked meal that wouldn't take forever to make. Enter this easy to make, one pot recipe that packs a ton of flavor and makes plenty of leftovers.

  • 1 lb of hot sausage
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2 packages of frozen tortellini (I buy the multi colored ones but only because its extra colorful)
  • 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Boil water in a pasta pan and cook tortellini according to package directions. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook onions and sausage in olive oil until browned.
  3. Add chicken broth, tomatoes and pepper and bring to a boil. 
  4. Turn heat down to low and add tortellini and let mixture simmer and thicken for about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and add cream cheese and shredded cheddar, mixing completely.
  6. Cover and let stand for another 5-10 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
