ONE PAN, 20 MINUTE, SAUSAGE TORTELLINI - Ummmm, good...




Now this is an easy recipe and looks so delicious! It would be great for a week night dinner. I got this from the Rachel Schultz Site . The tomato sauce that is in the recipe should be jarred spaghetti sauce. I read her notes and their were other people that questioned the sauce. So get you tortellini, your sausage, and make some sauce - 20 minutes! Then you can eat!

Spicy Sausage Skillet

I saw this on Pinterest (it took me to the Plain Chicken site) and thought I would like to try it. It looked easy and it looked good. Well, it turned out great!! It was a little spicy but spicy is suppose to rev up your metabolism - right? So that is good!

It's done in a skillet - no transferring to another pot or bowl (less to wash). I did modify it a little. I used 1 cup of heavy cream because I might have put too much penne pasta in and the pasta seemed to absorb the cream. I could only find the Rotel tomatoes with chili peppers. So I used them. I also used one of those frying pans that everything slips out of (advertised on TV) and it can be placed in the oven. Anyway, my husband and I just loved it! I will be making this dish again!
