I made this and everyone who tried it fell in love with it. Pretty easy to make and absolutely delicious.
sweet italian sausage tortelloni with garden veget
I made this dish for dinner last night and my husband ask if their was any more left because it was the best that he had tasted.
Simple is the key
My family couldn't get enough. What a great way to get the kids to eat their veges! I couldn't find the Buitoni brand tortellini so I substituted one pack each of sausage tortellini and mushroom stuffed tomato tortellini (18oz total) and it was just enough. I plan to make it again using different vegetables. This is a super tasty, easy week night meal and the kids love it!
I made this as my first meal to impress my new boyfriend. He loved it and requests it all the time now! I added freshly grated parmesan cheese and used three-cheese spaghetti sauce instead of the marinara sauce.
is it pre-cooked
I was wondering if you cook your food before you put it in the packages. I was wondering this, because i only cooked the sweet italian sasuage for about 5 minutes, and did not know if that is ok? Please respond to me as soon as poaaible. I ate it on November 30, 2002. thank you
This meal was really great, I enjoyed eating all the fresh vegetables(something I don't eat very often). I had never bought that brand of pasta or sauce before. I was very impressed they were both delicious, I will make this again. I enjoyed this meal so much I was looking forward to the leftovers all day!!
Lots of yummy veggies
This recipie has a lot of great fresh vegetables. It was easy to make! I couldn't get the sausage tortellini, so I used a peperoni and cheese. It was good, but I imagine that the 4-cheese or sausage tortellini would be even better.
After eating this meal many times, i can distinctly say that this ensamble was delicious.
