I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Spicy Italian Sausage, Tortellini and Peppers

This one pot wonder comes together in less than 30 minutes and is a spicy mix of Italian sausage, bright and colourful peppers, easy store bought tortellini and fragrant fresh basil. Also if you like, increase the broth from 2 to 5 cups and you've got yourself a hearty, healthy soup! 

12 oz (350g) Italian sausages
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 or 3 peppers, sliced
2 cups chicken broth
1 - 28 oz (796ml) can diced tomatoes
12 oz (350g) tortellini
1 1/2 cups greens, like spinach, arugula
a handful of fresh basil leaves
parmesan cheese for serving (optional)

Remove the casing from the sausages and cut up the meat. I used spicy sausage so no additional spices or salt and pepper were needed. The sausage spices did it all! Add olive oil to a large skillet, add the sausage meat and cook on medium high heat. Break up the meat as it cooks. When almost cooked add the onion and peppers and continue cooking another 3-4 minutes.

Pour in the broth and canned tomatoes and add the tortellini. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to your liking. Toss in the greens and fresh basil right before serving. That basil smells heavenly!

Serves 4
