    Quick, easy, and flavorful. I subbed the italian sausage for ground turkey and added some sun-dried tomatoes I had on hand.

    Excellent dish. Check the packaging for your tortellini for correct cook time (mine was only 2 minutes). Will definitely make again.

    Very interesting dish. Extremely easy, which I like. I’m not a huge fan of sausage, but the dish was good - something different! Next time I think I may add Zucchini or Squash to it for some extra flavor

    This is a flavorful, satisfying dish. I added some fresh roma tomatoes and peas. I also substituted toasted walnuts for the pine nuts because that's what I had on hand. This is definitely going to be in the rotation at the Davis' house. Thank you!

    This recipe was so rich in flavor and delicious!!! Definitely something I will be making again and it takes a lot for me to say that! The onions comes out caramelized and the garlic is so perfect! The only thing it doesn’t say in the directions is to slice up the sausage before you put it back in with the pasta. I recommend to do that after you transfer to plate!!! MANFICO, gets a ten in my book!!!

    This was much better than I thought it would be, highly recommend. Not sure what it was that made it stand out, perhaps just the combination of ingredients, but this was quite delicious.

    We didn’t like it. It was too many flavors with the sausage and the pesto....caveat I tried a new kind of pesto which I think was the real killer of the meal.

    LOVE this! It's quick, easy, and delicious. Even if you skip the pine nuts (my mom doesn't like them), it still works out.
