Smoked Sausage and Tortellini Skillet

A few months ago I was on the hunt for a recipe that was quick and simple. Working night shift, I don't always have the energy when I get up from sleeping to cook something for dinner before heading to work. This dish is simple and only takes one pan! I'm usually hesitant about one dish meals especially when there's pasta involved because the pasta normally likes to be a hog and suck up all the glorious sauce you make. This dish is not like that at all. The pasta is not a hog and it makes this wonderful, delicious, tomato and cream sauce. I got the recipe from one of my most favorite bloggers, Stephanie, from over at Plain Chicken. I made it again last night and I must say this one is a keeper boys and girls. I'm adding recipes to my binder (which will be in another post) to have and save for future meals I am going to fix my main squeeze. 

Stephanie said she used turkey sausage and I used polish kielbasa. You can really 
use any kind of sausage you want! This dish was simple and smelled amazing when cooking, especially the sausage. 

Look at all that yummy saucy goodness. It was even good leftover when I took it for my lunch at work. This dish is a definite keeper!

I ended up fixing me a few pieces of garlic bread to go along with it. Keep on the lookout for a post about my recipe binder soon! Happy eating!
