Sausage Tortellini Alfredo

“A wonderful combination of rich alfredo sauce and three cheese tortellini -with veggies and Italian sausage to make matters worse (or better!). This is not for the faint of heart for calories, but that's why they invented the "just a garden salad for me" lunch! :) This recipe looks fancy enough for company but uses pre-made sauces and pasta for convenience. I have used Buitoni refrigerated pasta and sauce as well as those listed in the recipe. Using homemade versions could only make it tastier!”
