How to make Italian sausage tortellini

Print this recipe
Tortellini is a quick dish to make when you need something hot and delicious on the table in no time flat. Tortellini in the refrigerated section of the store is quicker to cook than normal pasta. In the recipe below, in the time it takes for those little bundles of pasta to float to the surface of the water, dinner will be ready.
The secret is using seasoned Italian sausage to make the bulk of the sauce. All you have to do is cut the sausage into sections, cook it and toss it with the cooked tortellini and a few other odds and ends, and dinner is served. You won't even need to season with salt; the salt from the ricotta, sausage and Parmesan cheese will be more than enough.
