Creamy Tomato & Cheese Tortellini with Sausage

This pasta is simple and wonderful! It comes together in a flash and tastes like a dream.

Make it for dinner tonight, you will thank me tomorrow!

What you need,

1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced (any kind you like is fine)
1 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
¾-1 cup chicken broth
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. Italian season
½ cup heavy cream
1 9oz. pkg. fresh cheese tortellini
Salt and Pepper
¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
Fresh grated parmesan cheese for serving

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook the sausage for 4-5 minutes per side until brown and crisp. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute or so until fragrant.

Add the broth, tomato sauce, brown sugar, Italian seasoning, and cream, stir to combine. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
Stir in the tortellini and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 10-12 minutes until the tortellini is tender.

Stir in the fresh basil.
Serve with a little fresh grated parmesan.

That’s it, 20 minutes start to finish! We LOVED it; I will be making it again for sure!
