Cheesy Tortellini and Sausage Skillet


I ate this bite and behold, it was very good.

The weather’s turnin’ cold, folks!  Time for something warm and cozy, says I.

Cheesy Tortellini and Sausage Skillet?  Yep.  That sounds about right.

I’ve seen variations of this dish all over the interwebs and decided to make my own rendition.  One thing I love about it is how easy it is to add whatever random veggies you’ve got in the fridge and no one will be the wiser.  Well, within reason.  And as for prep, who doesn’t love a one dish wonder?  This dinner comes together in about 30-45 minutes and the clean-up is a breeze.  Your family will love this one, so why not give it a try?

The Microplane

Best tool ever.

Do you have a Microplane?  If not, go get one.  You’ll thank me later, I promise!

If you have ever struggled to zest a lemon on a box grater, you simply must try the Microplane.  Though it may be nothing more than a glorified carpenter’s rasp with a handle, it has revolutionized the way I zest citrus and grate ginger.  Just imagine–no more picking that precious zest or stringy ginger from a grating board!

But that’s not all!  Not only does the Microplane work magic on your lemons and ginger, it also works beautifully on hard cheeses, chocolate, and whole spices.  Whether you’re seeking a fine grating of Parmigiano for your panko crust, a beautiful garnish of shaved chocolate, or a fragrant dusting of nutmeg on your latte, the Microplane does it with ease.
