This quick and easy dinner took no time to make. It was hearty and delicious and will definitely be making another appearance one day soon, especially since school is about to start.
Remember being a kid and coming home starving after school? Well, I’ve got news for you. It happens to the teachers, too! I’ll be adding this recipe to my quick, fast, and in a hurry arsenal to use on one of those “must have food… now!!!!!!” nights.
The sweet peppers in this recipe compliment the sweet spaghetti sauce and both pair perfectly with thick slices of smoked sausage and cheese filled pasta.
Sausage and Peppers Tortellini
Time: 15-20 minutes
1 c. tortellini, uncooked
1/2 c. tri-color peppers and onions (frozen)
1/2 c. smoked turkey sausage, sliced (you can use beef)
1/2 c. spaghetti sauce (I used an Italian vegetable variety)
Cook pasta according to packaged directions. During the last 2 minutes of boiling, add peppers and onions to the pasta. Drain. Put pasta and peppers and onions back into the pan, add sausage, and top with spaghetti sauce. Simmer over medium-low heat until heated throughout. Yum!
- This is also very good cold the next day so keep your leftovers and pack them in your lunchbox!
