Italian sausage tortellini

Makes 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 lb mild Italian turkey sausage
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, no salt added
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 9 ounces tortellini (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach, loosely packed


Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. When the oil is very hot, add the onions. Add turkey sausage to the pan and cook until sausage is browned. Reduce heat to low, add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add broth, tomatoes, cream, and tortellini to the skillet. Stir to combine. Increase heat and bring to a boil.

Cover, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes until tortellini are tender. Add spinach, and stir until softened and wilted. Remove from heat and serve.
