Pesto Alfredo Tortellini with Smoked Sausage
Cheesy tortellini and juicy smoked sausage are drenched in a creamy pesto Alfredo sauce with tomatoes, garlic, and gooey cheese. It’s the best of both worlds: amazing taste AND it comes together in less than 30 minutes!
Servings 8 servings
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 (13.5 oz) package Hillshire Farms Turkey Pepper Jack Smoked Sausage
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 (20 oz) package fresh tortellini
- 10 oz Alfredo sauce
- 7 oz prepared pesto
- 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with italian seasonings, partially drained
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Begin by preparing tortellini according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Slice the sausage and add to the hot pan, cooking until lightly browned. Add in garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Once tortellini is finished cooking, drain well and add to the skillet with the cooked sausage, along with Alfredo sauce, pesto, and diced tomatoes (I drain them a little, but not completely).
Reduce heat and stir ingredients well to combine. Continue cooking over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Keep warm until ready to serve. Enjoy!
