Creamy Pesto Tortellini with Smoked Sausage ~ submitted by Lisa O'Hara

This Easy Gourmet Recipe submission is great for a family meal or a dinner party!


1 package Three Cheese Tortellini
1 long link Smoked Turkey Sausage
1 cup fresh or frozen Peas
1 cup Creamy Alfredo Sauce
1/2 cup Pesto Sauce

Bring a large pot of water to boil and add in the Tortellini. When the Tortellini has cooked (all floating to the top) strain, but do not rinse. Place the Tortellini back in the pot.

While the Tortellini is boiling, cook the Turkey Sausage either in a skillet or on the grill. Once it has cooked, cut it into bite sized pieces.

In a sauce pan warm the Alfredo Sauce and Pesto Sauce together, stirring regularly.

Once these three elements are prepared add the Sausage and Peas to the Tortellini and pour the sauce in. Stir, until blended evenly.
