Cheesy Tortellini and Sausage Skillet

Most weekends are busy in our house and now that the weather is finally starting to get nice around here we have been spending a lot of time outside. I wanted something quick and easy to make for dinner so this skillet pasta made the perfect Sunday dinner. Quick and easy and a great way to mix up my everyday pasta. It was a hit!

Cheesy Tortellini and Sausage Skillet
Serves 4
Cal 365, Fat 14g, Carbs 38.7, Fiber 2g, Protein 18.2g

1 14oz package smoked sausage, sliced (I used turkey smoked sausage)
2 cups cheese tortellini (I used Barilla three cheese)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups fat free chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional, but we like things spicy!)
non stick cooking spray

Spray a large skillet with non stick cooking spray and add in the sausage. Cook until sausage is starting to brown. Next add in your garlic and cook for another minute. Add in your chicken broth, tomato sauce, and red pepper flakes. Once mixture starts to simmer add your tortellini. Cover and cook over low heat for 14 minutes. Top with shredded Parmesan. Enjoy!
