DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the tortellini as per package directions, drain reserving 3 tablespoons cooking liquid.
  • Place the sausages in boiling water and cook until firm, remove and cool until cool enough to handle. Thinly slice the sausage.
  • Over medium heat, melt the butter and add olive oil, cook sausages through until nicely browned; stir in onions, minced garlic and cabbage.
  • Saute for 5 minutes or until cabbage is crisp tender; stir in drained cooked tortellini, fennel seeds, red pepper flakes and pimentos. Season with salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Lower the heat to low, add the crème fraiche and reserved pasta cooking liquid; cook just until warmed through.
  • Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and crusty Italian bread.
