Tortellini and Sausage Recipe

This pasta was delicious! We had it on a cold, snowy night and it was warm and filling. I had some of the leftovers for lunch today and they were just as wonderful. I can’t wait to have this recipe again.

Ever since I found Butterball’s Everyday Turkey Sausage, i have been finding ways to use it-it is so good. It is always nice to mix things up from chicken and beef.
