Everyone knows that February 14th is Valentine's Day but did you know that the 13th is Tortellini Day? Well it is! I don't know why and it seems there is a day for just about everything. But I have a tortellini recipe that is worth making this a holiday. It's a complete meal, pretty easy to make and delicious!

  • 1 Lb. Of Sweet Italian Sausage out of casing
  • 1 small/medium package of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 bag of fresh baby spinach
  • 1 small/medium package of tortellini
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

Saute' chunks of sausage and minced garlic in extra virgin olive oil. When meat is opaque add mushroom slices. Stir on medium/high heat for 3 minutes. Then add diced tomatoes, season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings. Cook tortellini in separate pot of salted water. Remove 1 minutes before suggested cooking time and add to sausage/veggie pan and mix well for one minute.
