I was hesitant to make this after reading the last review. The sausage tortellini is key and I added 4 cloves of garlic and put them in after 10 minutes. Also salted and peppered when I started sauteeing. Yummy!

    When I make sausage and peppers I add pasta. This saved a step. I use green,red, yellow...but the green needs to cook more than the colored peppers.

    Caramelizing the onions and the peppers give you a mushy dish. Just stir fry the peppers to crisp/tender and add a few red pepper flakes to add a little zip.

    Perfect!

    Nicole Blom from United States

    This recipe received high accolades from my finicky gourmet boyfriend. He commented that it looked "beautiful" in addition to tasting fabulous. And it really does! I couldn't find the Sweet Italian Sausage tortellini so I substituted Buitoni's Chicken and Prosciutto tortellini. Also, after the veggies carmelized I added the cooked tortellini to the pan for a few minutes, stirring to let the flavors and juices meld together. That was the real trick to make this work.

    Tasty and quick for weeknight meals

    Anne from Boston, Ma

    This recipe is great! We call it "Fenway Pasta" in our family because it reminds us of the sausage sandwiches we get outside the ballpark. Have patience, low and slow really blends the flavors, and the liquid given off by the veggies coats the pasta nicely.

    Wonderful!

    Karri from Georgetown TX

    This is such an easy and flavorful meal! I was sceptical at first because there isn't a sauce, but if made correctly, the caramelized vegies give the meal LOTS of flavor. Even my picky husband loved it and I'm making it for the 2nd time tonight. Great with an easy salad and even bread if you like!

    A good Start

    Kunzieo from Cottage Grove, Mn

    This recipe was ok, but I hit a few snags. My grocery store did not carry the sweet sausage tortellini required to make this, so I used a different flavor of Buitoni tortellini. Also, looking at the finished product, before I served it, it seemed like it needed something else, because the tortellini did not mix well with the vegetables, so I took a few of the red peppers out and put them in the blender with a little bit of cream of onion condensed soup and a little water, to make a light sauce that helped give the tortellini a better flavor, and helped everything stick together a little better.
