Suasage Tortellini with Tomato Cream Sauce

Lately, I've been trying to choose one new recipe a week.  My Pinterest addiction aids my search for yummy new things to try.  I've also pulled out some older recipes that I haven't made in a while too. 

A couple of weeks ago, I made a Sausage Tortellini recipe.  

*Disclaimer~ I always modify ingredients to fit our tastes.  Also, I am NOT in any way a food photographer as evidenced by these pictures.  I just snapped a few with my phone to give you an idea.
Check out that fancy salad bowl.  Only the best around here folks.

Sausage Tortellini with Tomato Cream Sauce (my adapted recipe)

1 pound breakfast sausage
2 cups spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 bag frozen cheese tortellini, prepared.
Salt & pepper (a pinch or two)
Garlic (to taste)

In a large skillet, cook sausage until browned.  Add all ingredients except tortellini. Mix together and simmer for about 10 minutes.  Stir in tortellini.  Serve!

Obviously, this is super easy.  The original recipe called for sausage links, and I substituted the breakfast sausage.  It also called for tomato sauce, but I just added in a can of spaghetti sauce.  I also added a little crushed red pepper.  We all liked it!
