Creamy One Pot Sausage and Butternut Squash Tortellini Recipe

 I've really been working hard to use the food that I have unknowingly collected over the last few months (don't act like you don't know what I am talking about.  We all do it.) to cut down on the amount of money that I have been spending at the grocery store.  It's been fun because it's really pushed me to think outside the box and get creative in the kitchen.  It's in those moments that recipes like this Creamy One Pot Sausage Butternut Squash and Tortellini are born.

Using simple ingredients this savory and herbaceous Creamy One Pot Sausage and Butternut Squash Tortellini Recipe is ready in 30 minutes and full of the flavors we crave during this time of year.  I know you are going to love it so let me show you how I make it. 


Q: Can this recipe be made vegan/vegetarian?

A:  Yes.  This recipe can easily be transitioned to plant based.  For vegan, you will need to swap the regular ingredients with vegan tortellini, sausage, coconut cream, and parmesan cheese.  If you can't find vegan tortellini you can swap for ravioli.  For vegetarian you will simply need to swap the broth for vegetable broth and plant based sausage. 

Q: I can't find the apple sausage.  Can I use regular smoked sausage.

A: Absolutely. You can use any sort of protein really, but things like chicken and beef will change the cooking time. 

Q: I'm not a fan of kale.  Can I use spinach?

A: Yes!  You can even omit it all together if you want. 

Q: Can I use fresh butternut Squash and Kale?

A: Yes, but that will affect the 30 minute cooking time.
