Sausage Tortellini Skillet – Your favorite tortellini comes together in a quick and easy hearty one pan meal the whole family will love!
I was up at 4:30 am this morning to catch a flight to Chicago. As excited as I am to get to hang out with other bloggers, meet new friends and learn a ton, I do not enjoy the early wake up call. The good part…I didn’t have to drive to the airport. Thankfully, Sandra from A Dash of Sanity lives near me and is going to the same conference. So she drove!
I really don’t mind driving, but at 5:00 in the morning, there are other things I would rather do. So I am off to a weekend of learning, and the boys in my life are home. I have to miss my son’s first basketball game of the season, but hopefully they will do well and I can hear all about it later.
You know I am all about quick and easy dinners. I love a one pan meal and so does my family. But I want to make sure they are always full of flavor. One thing I have found recently is Gourmet Garden herbs. They are fresh herbs that are packed in a tube for you. So all you have to do is squeeze out how much you need and put it back in the fridge.
I don’t know about you, but I am always buying bunches of fresh herbs, and then end up throwing over half of them away a few days later. The thing I really like about Gourmet Garden herbs is they last for weeks in your fridge. So I always have them when I need them, and I am wasting a lot less food! For dinners like this Sausage Tortellini Skillet it really adds the depth of flavor fresh herbs does, but you don’t have to buy multiple different fresh herbs to get it!
Sausage Tortellini Skillet is ready in no time. And even your pickiest eater is going to love it! My son had a friend spend the night a few weeks ago. This friend is one of the pickiest kids I know! So I was really not sure what to feed him. I figured, pasta, cheese, and sausage….what is not to like. He loved it. He even went back for 2nds.
So if I can impress him, you know you can impress your family. Everything cooks in one skillet, so clean up is super quick. And the leftovers are great the next day for lunch! And with how crazy things are this time of year, I think we can all be thankful for quick dinner and easy clean up! I used this large skillet to make this tortellini in, and it cleans up so nicely!
