I made this Spicy Sausage Tortellini dish months ago for the hubby and pretty much completely forgot about it until the other night. I had some fresh three cheese tortellini that I was making for dinner when I remembered I can’t eat it because of the cheese. Yup, still on the whole restricted diet for the little one. Darnit. So, I figured we may as well use up the rest of the spicy sausage and I made this dish. This took .5 seconds to make and I ate spaghetti with no cheese 🙁
