Creamy Cheese Tortellini with Spinach and Sausage

The Menu:
Creamy Cheese Tortellini with Spinach and Sausage


The Original Recipe:
I have been cooking new meals, but I haven't had the chance to take pictures or blog about our delicious meals. My kids are in love with spinach, lately. I add it into everything!

Creamy Cheese Tortellini with Spinach and Sausage

1 bag frozen cheese tortellini
1 pkg. Hillshire Farms Beef Sausage
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 block cream cheese
1 1/2 cup fresh spinach (or more if you like)
1 handful fresh basil, minced
1/2 cup water or chicken stock

Saute onion and garlic along with sausage. Add in tortellini, water, tomato sauce and basil. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until tortellini is cooked through. Add in cream cheese and stir until melted through. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Serve with some grated Parmesan, if desired.
