Roasted Pepper Tortellini

I loved this as did the hubs and the kids. It was a definite winner for our family.
Roasted Red Pepper Tortellini

From: Taste of Home Simple and Delicious Cookbook

1 pkg. (20 oz.) refrigerated cheese tortellini
5 Italian sausage links
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 jar (15 1/2 oz.) roasted sweet red pepper, drained
1 can (15 oz.) pizza sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook the tortellini according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage in oil over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Cut it into 1/4 in" slices. (I like to peel the the casing off and break it into chunks before cooking it.)

Place the peppers in a blender or food processor; cover and process until smooth, drain tortellini. Add the tortellini, pureed peppers and pizza sauce to the skillet; stir to combine. Cook for 5 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses; cover and heat until cheese is melted.
