I believe this is one of my boyfriend's favorite dishes. The touch of lemon in the sauce make the tomatoes and the sausage delectable!
1 Pkg Ground Sweet or Hot Italian Sausage
1 Pkg Barilla Three Cheese Tortellini
3-4 Cloves Garlic Minced
3 Tablespoons Butter
1-1/2 Cups Heavy Cream
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 Pint Grape Tomatoes each cut in half
1 Lemon juice & zest
Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon Parsley
Heat non-stick skillet on medium high heat. Brown sausage and drain fat. Set aside. Boil water and cook tortellini’s per directions on bag. In the same skillet, melt butter and add flour. Whisk together and let cook for 2 minutes. Add heavy cream and continue whisking for a few more minutes. Add garlic, zest of half a lemon, juice of whole lemon, grape tomatoes, sausage, a sprinkle of salt & fresh ground pepper, and let simmer. Once tortellini’s are drained, add into sauce and stir to combine. Sprinkle with parsley when served.
