Creamy Italian Sausage and Tortellini
This creamy Italian Sausage and Tortellini is a perfect quick weeknight dinner. It's quick and easy and the cream sauce is lighter, but still full of flavor.
Servings: 4 -6 servings
- 3 Italian Sausage Links
- 20 ounces cheese tortellini
- 1 can Italian diced tomatoes undrained
- 4 ounces cream cheese I use the reduced fat version
- A handful or two of fresh spinach if desired

In a large skillet, cook the sausage through. Meanwhile cook the tortellini according to package instructions. When sausage is cooked through add tomatoes, spinach and cream cheese. Cook over low heat until spinach wilts and cream cheese is melted. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Toss in the cooked tortellini.
Serve immediately with basil and Parmesan if desired.
