Cheesy Italian Sausage and Tortellini Recipe

Cheesy Italian Sausage and Tortellini Recipe

You may be noticing a theme these days….fast and delicious weeknight meal ideas are front and center for me right now. Back to school evenings are busy but I love having a home cooked meal to serve anyway. This deliciously cheesy skillet fits the bill perfectly. It’s an easy tortellini recipe that you will use again and again.

Dewey and I both gave it two big thumbs up. Evan picked out the tortellini and the sausage because he is a pain that way. I see this being in heavy rotation this fall. Served with a salad and a piece of garlic toast, it is the perfect weeknight meal.
