Smoked Sausage Tortellini Skillet

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 pound smoked sausage

  • 3 cloves minced garlic

  • 3/4 cup chicken stock

  • 1 cup tomato sauce

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

  • 1 package frozen cheese tortellini

Directions

1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Slice the smoked sausage thinly and add it to the skillet and cook until well-browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add the garlic and cook and stir for 30 seconds.

2. Add the chicken stock, tomato sauce, heavy cream, and salt and pepper and stir until simmering and bubbly. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in the parmesan cheese until melted, then add the frozen peas and heat through.

3. While the sauce is simmering, cook the tortellini in boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.

4. Add the tortellini to the skillet and stir gently to coat with sauce. Serve.
