Creamy Polska Tortellini

craftycreativekathy.wordpress.comI came across this recipe on Pinterest. Looked delicious! We had to alter it to fit our family and it turned out fantastic. We aren’t big fans of sausage mostly because of those hard, whitish chunks that kind of freak me out because I have to wonder what it is. So our family uses polska kielbasa instead. It’s a smoother blend and mighty tasty just fried and served with good ol’ fashioned Kraft Mac-n-cheese. Give this Creamy Polska Tortellini a try, it certainly has made it into our monthly dinner rotation! Best part is that it is a one skillet dinner making clean up a breeze! A must have for your kitchen is World Spice Minced Garlic. So worth the money! We drop a dollop in almost all of our dishes! It comes in a squeeze bottle or a jar.

Also, pick any spaghetti sauce you like, we prefer Hunts Garlic and Herb Spaghetti Sauce in a can. The best flavor and often only a buck!

Fresh tortellini is usually found near the boxed, dry noodles in a refrigerated section. This Buitoni was extra yummy and cheesy!

We like to use Hillshire Farms Polska Kielbasa in any recipe that calls for sausage. It really is a smoother blend that is noticeable in the way it looks and tastes. Pretty inexpensive too! Man, I need a new meat cutting board…ours looks horrible, lol! Just a note that we doubled this recipe so the photos reflect that. We knew we wanted to make a double batch so that we had leftovers for lunch that Steve could take to work and that Spencer and I could easily heat up.
