Three Cheese Sausage Tortellini

We have different variations of tortellini recipes in my Meal planning archives. I make it with different types or meats, tortellini pasta and sauces. This time we tried a three cheese tortellini I found in our local grocery store and man was it so good! This dish packs a ton of flavor and has SUPER easy steps to whip together.

Thinly slice garlic and onions and add to a deep frying pan with a drizzle of oil. Toss until fragrant, about 1 minute then season with salt and pepper.  Next add sausage and cook until almost done. When it is almost fully cooked, mix in a bowl the flour to half and half.

Continue cooking until sauce thickens and tortellini are tender. Roughly this will take 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. We like to serve with  extra parmesan cheese on top and fruit as a side.
