Chicken Sausage, Veggie, and Tortellini Skillet

My husband is scheduled to be traveling this week, with the exception of today since it's parent-teacher conference night at my school and I'm required to be there. Due to this, he had arranged someone to cover his traveling since I won't be home until late this evening. But he was unexpectedly home last night as well and I hadn't really planned a dinner. I was actually content making an omelet and cutting up some delicious fresh Florida strawberries and enjoying as I caught up on a full DVR box. I knew he probably wouldn't want eggs for dinner so I asked if he wanted sausage and tortellini in a garlic butter sauce and he practically gave me two thumbs up.

I usually always have a package of chicken sausage and fresh tortellini in the fridge because it's such a simple, and somewhat reasonably healthy dinner.  We also had part of a green pepper as well as a red onion so I decided to make a little skillet instead of just doing sausage and pasta. We have to eat our veggies, right?

There are so many different varieties of chicken sausage available that we are always trying something new but my favorite is the roasted red pepper and asiago from Al Fresco.  The sodium is a tad high, but the rest of my daily intake of sodium is typically low, so I knew it'd be just fine! 

This really is a quick and easy recipe that you can add so many other veggies to -- diced up broccoli , red pepper, asparagus, or whatever your favorite vegetable is. Besides green pepper and red onion, I also cut a few grape tomatoes in thirds and threw those in the skillet as I was sauteeing the veggies and chicken sausage. 

So make a list and head on over to the grocery store and make this for dinner tonight -- it's one you'll make again and again! 

Chicken Sausage, Veggie, and Tortellini Skillet 

1 package chicken sausage
1 package fresh, not frozen tortellini
3/4 green pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 red onion cut into 1 inch pieces
8-10 grape tomatoes, cut into thirds
olive oil
black pepper
garlic powder

1. Heat olive oil in sautee pan. Add cut veggies and chicken sausage.
2. Boil water for tortellini (add a little bit of olive oil so the tortellini doesn't stick) and cook pasta according to package directions.
3. Drain pasta.
4. Add butter, garlic powder, and black pepper and stir until butter is melted.
5. Pour tortellini into skillet and stir until mixed. 


Sorry about the horrible 
quality picture -- I just snapped a quick pic!

  11. My name is Mary Silva, I just split up with my boyfriend of 7 years. We were great together, completely in love and talked about marriage and growing old together, we traveled the world together, everyone knows us as a perfect couple, we never fought always laughed together… however the last 2 years have been very difficult. We have been living together for over 5 years but the last 2 years have been a stressful living situation as I had to take in a friend that was in need. I also started my own business which kept me extremely busy. I am completely devastated, hurt, lost and just want him back. I love him completely. We had a few discussions before he left about trying to work things out, and he felt I took him for granted…I had stopped treating him with appreciation and love. I agreed that I have to be more romantic and be an equal partner in the relationship. Over the course of the following days I showed him love and appreciation, treated him like I had done in the past however he still wanted out. he said he needed time and space to figure out what he wants. I told him I would not give up on us but I would give him space that he wanted. he said he still loved me and care a lot about me but was just hurting.i was totally down because i need my man back one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in two days after his spell my man who told me he needed space, call me and come back home to me i must say today we are happily married not only married but have two lovely kids all thanks to Dr happy a father and a real spell caster.
