Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • You really can make this meal your own. Use turkey or chicken Italian sausage if you want to cut down on some of the fat and calories.
  • I like to use store bought fresh tortellini, but you could definitely use frozen if you have it. I like to use cheese, because there is already meat in the sauce. But use whatever you like!
  • Want to add veggies? Add 2 cups of spinach to the sauce and let it wilt down when you stir in the half and half.
  • Don’t have half and half? Use heavy cream or whole milk. You are just making it a little bit creamy and not just a full red marinara sauce. You can even skip it if you want to.
  • Like it spicy? Use hot Italian sausage or add in red pepper flakes to the sauce.

Storage

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. It will last for 4-5 days. You can reheat in the microwave until it is warmed through for a quick and easy lunch the next day.

  1. It was so great to meet you this past weekend!! And this skillet? My family would go crazy for it! All of our favorite flavors!

  2. Hi,
    Do you know if the Gourmet Gardens products are available in San Diego, Ca? I have not seen them. I looked on their website and saw that they are located in Australia, it didn’t say where to buy them here.

    1. They are available at almost every major grocery store in the US. On their site, look at the store locator. you can put in your cite or zip code and it will give you a list. They are located in the product department, near the other herbs at my stores.

  3. I purchased sausage tortellini and looking for a recipe. All tortellini recipe are about cheese or three cheeses. I am not adding Italian sausage its in the tortellini, Help Me

    1. You could use those tortellini in any recipe that sounds good to you – just leave out the meat called for in the recipe. If there isn’t any meat, but you think sausage sounds good with it, then use your tortellini. This soup would be good https://dinnersdishesanddesserts.com/italian-tortellini-soup/ or this other creamy tortellini recipe – https://dinnersdishesanddesserts.com/tomato-basil-tortellini/ My family loves sausage, so I will often use the sausage tortellini in recipes that call for cheese. I just don’t add extra meat, because then it is too much. Hope that helps.

  4. This is right up my taste love sausage and of course pasta, I would love to post this image on my blog with your permission and link it back to your recipe page so my visitors can get the recipe from your site, I will NOT post it cause its yours and you deserve the credit as well as the traffic, I am gathering only good images that help my blog and improve my appearance , you have very good images I would never do anything with out your permission.
    Thank You for your consideration
    Ernest

    1. Correct, pasta is not keto. I don’t believe it is labeled or described as Keto, if you got that impression I am sorry.
