Easy cheese tortellini with sausage and broccoli recipe
  • package premade cheese tortellini
  • 1 package smoked sausage
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup white wine or chicken broth (I used the broth because I didn't have any wine)
  • 2 heads of broccoli
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  1. Boil the tortellini according to the package. Drain and set aside, but like use some olive oil and stir it apart so it doesn't get all clumpy
  2. Slice the smoked sausage and cook in large skillet over medium heat
  3. Once it's cooked remove to a bowl.
  4. Add garlic to the same pan using the juicy goodness from the meat to cook it.
  5. Add the oregano, salt, and pepper.
  6. Pour in the wine or broth.
  7. Add broccoli, cover, and let simmer until crisp tender (like 10 minutes should be good)
  8. Put the meat and the pasta back in the pan and toss to coat.
  9. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  10. Serve with warm bread if you really want to pack on the carbs.
