Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat butter in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms, 1/2 cup white wine, and 1 clove minced garlic until liquid has reduced and mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and place in a bowl.

  • Heat the same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir Italian sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes, dividing it into bite-sized portions while stirring. Remove excess grease by placing paper towels onto a plate and dumping browned sausage onto it to drain. Return sausage to the skillet.

  • Return cooked mushrooms back to the skillet with sausage and add tortellini, basil pesto sauce, remaining 1/2 cup white wine, and remaining garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes more. Mix well to combine. Remove from heat and serve.

I'm wondering if the author of this recipe used basil Alfredo sauce rather than basil pesto sauce since it lists 14.5 ounces? Also, the video appears to show a white-colored sauce being added, whereas pesto sauce is green. Read More

I added a very large chopped red pepper and a full pound of Italian sausage since that was what came in the package. Read More

As is the recipe has a little too much sauce and sausage for the amount of tortellini. I think the next time we make this we'll increase the amount of tortellini. I really liked the pesto flavoring rather than going with the usual tomato sauce base. Read More
