Creamy Pesto Tortellini

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Package tri color tortellini (any kind will do)
  • 1 pound sausage (turkey sausage if you can find it)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 cup prepared pesto (we buy ours at Costco)
  • 3/4 cup low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the sausage.
Cook, stirring occasionally to break up the meat, about 6-8 minutes or until cooked through.
Drain the grease and place the meat on a plate.
Place the pan with browned bits back on the burner and add the olive oil and garlic.
Heat the pan back up to medium heat.
Meanwhile, heat a large pot over medium heat, filled half way with water.
Season with 1/2-1 teaspoon of salt.
Once the browned bits pan is hot, add the flour and whisk for 30 seconds.
Quickly add the almond milk and continue to whisk.
Once the sauce comes to a boil turn down to a simmer and allow to thicken.
Add the pesto, whisk again and heat through.
Heat the oven to broil.
Place the tortellini in a baking dish, add the sausage and sauce and carefully fold all of the ingredients together.
Sprinkle the top with a little cheese and place under the broiler until melted.
Serve immediately.
