1 pound package of smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
1 small onion, chopped
2 clove garlic, minced
20-oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
28-oz diced tomatoes
1 cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper
1-oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded jack cheese
1. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook about 3-4 minutes until softened. Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add sausage and cook until browned on both sides.
2. Stir in chicken broth, tortellini, and tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until pasta is tender, stirring at least once to prevent sticking. If there is too much liquid left in the pan, spoon some out. But be sure to leave enough behind to make the sauce.
3. Remove from heat and stir in cheeses. Cover and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
