Creamy Tomato Tortellini with Sausage

No one will believe that just three ingredients make up this tomato sauce that tastes like it bubbled away all day on top of the stove. It's that good. —Jennifer Eggert, Scottsdale, Arizona

    This is a favorite recipe of mine. I like to substitute low-fat greek yogurt for the cream cheese to save a few calories!

    This was so simple and easy. I did use full fat cream cheese, because I already had that on hand and I did sprinkle parmesan over the top, when I served it. Delicious.

    Simple to assemble on a busy work night. Any type of chicken sausage would work. I topped with a bit of crushed red pepper for some spice.

    Quick and easy! Instead of frozen tortellini, we used the bag stuff, which was only 12 oz. We liked a lot of sauce so did the full amount of sauce. I didn't do all the sausage though because it seemed like too much. Hubby and I loved it! Next time I will add more onion and garlic and maybe mix in some shredded parmesan!

    This was good, but needed a little sonethin' somethin'. I added a few shakes of Jane's Krazy Salt seasoning, but it needed something else. Next time I'll add more sausage, and some fresh garlic. Also, maybe some Better 'n Boullion will do the trick. Just maybe 1/2 a teaspoon or so. I'll make it again, but needs a bit of tweaking to make it awesome. Enjoyed the recipe, though.
