Spicy Sausage and Cheddar Tortellini Skillet

This is one of my all time favorite dishes. I remember the first time I made this skillet I was a little skeptical of tortellini going well with smoked sausage. Well, I sure wasn't skeptical for long. It was delicious! Now that I am more calorie conscious I use turkey smoked sausage and it is just as good!

1 8 oz. package cheese tortellini (non refrigerated)
1 can diced tomatoes in garlic and olive oil, undrained
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese

Spray a large skillet with non stick cooking spray and add in the sausage. Cook until sausage is starting to brown. Next add in the diced tomatoes, water, and red pepper flakes. Once mixture starts to simmer add in the tortellini. Cover and cook over low heat for 14 minutes. About 5 minutes before serving sprinkle with shredded cheddar. Enjoy!
