Tortellini with Sausage & Spinach

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 1 lb fresh 3 cheese tortellini
  • 2 Tbsp. basil pesto
  • 2 Spolumbo’s chicken and red pepper sausages
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or water
  • 1/2 - 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • extra virgin olive or canola oil, for cooking
  • grated Parmesan, for serving

How to Make It

In a large pot of boiling water, cook the tortellini until it's just done, according to the package directions. Drain and toss with pesto.

In a large, heavy skillet, heat a drizzle of oil and squeeze the sausage out of its casing into the pan. Sauté, breaking it up with a spoon, until it’s about halfway cooked; add the mushrooms and garlic and cook until the meat is no longer pink. Add the stock or water and stir to scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan, then stir in the cream. Cook for a few minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly.

Add the tortellini to the pan and tear in the spinach. Cook for another minute or two, until heated through and the spinach wilts. Serve topped with Parmesan.
