ONE-POT CREAMY SAUSAGE AND TOMATO TORTELLINI

Yesterday I was facetiming with my sister-in-law and she was telling me how she made my Marinated Caprese Salad for a potluck at work. The only changes she made was that she added cheese tortellini to it. 

I gasped, “Tortellini? Who do you think you are, Garth Brooks?!” 

Then I thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?

Garth Brooks is notorious for adding tortellini to everything. He’s known for his breakfast bowl recipe which…you guessed it, has tortellini in it. 

Who doesn’t like tortellini? Cheese filled tortellini nonetheless.

As with most great dinner dishes, this One-Pot Creamy Sausage and Tomato Tortellini came about on rushed dinner night where I needed something fast.
