Adapted from Short Cut Mom; quick, and easy with ingredients you can keep on hand. I substitute frozen peas for the frozen edamame.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 cup diced red pepper
  • 1 lb smoked sausage
  • 12 cup Italian dressing

Directions

  1. Set 6 quarts of salted water to boil in a large pot.
  2. Meanwhile, chop red pepper and slice the smoked sausage into 1/4 inch-thick rounds.
  3. Stir-fry red pepper and sausage together until heated through -- about 5 minutes.
  4. Add tortellini to boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add edamame to water and boil for another 2 minutes. Drain tortellini and edamame well.
  6. Toss everything together with the Italian dressing and heat through one final time.
