Directions

  1. Boil water in a large pot to boil the tortellini according to package directions.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add onion. Saute the onion for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened. Add sliced mushrooms, crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper and continue cooking for 5 minutes, add the sausage and saute mixing all together allowing the ingredients to caramelize and brown on the edges, about 5 more minutes.
  3. Add wine, bring to a low simmer for about 2 minutes, stirring and gently scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Pour in the Alfredo sauce, stir together.
  4. As it starts to bubble add the cheeses, stir to blend until melted. Add the hot cooked tortellini and fold over gently to coat the pasta. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.

This was A-MAZ-ING!! Very easy to put together and had a rich luscious cheesy flavor. Instead of the olive oil, cooked some bacon to chop and add in and used the drippings to saute the onion and mushrooms. Will definitely be making this again soon.

Very good. Didn't really like the sausage flavor. Next time will make without the meat. Very filling. Great pasta dish.

Changed up the cheeses a bit to use what I had and used a different sausage because the one listed wasn't available. I used a spicier sausage to cut through all the creaminess. Super yummy. will do again.
