One thought on “Tortellini and Sausage in Tomato Cream Sauce

  1. Some changes I made. I used mild Italian sausage. I added some Parmesen cheese to the sauce. I also added granulated garlic, some Italian seasoning and more black pepper than called for. Oh yeah, I also replaced some of the tomato liquid with some white wine.

    Another note, frozen tortellini worked just fine. Just make sure they are cooked through before adding the cheeses.
