Ingredients

  • 1 pound kielbasa thinly sliced
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 20-ounce package of cheese tortellini
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Chopped parsley optional

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat the kielbasa until warm
  • Add the tortellini, water, onions, paprika and garlic powder
  • Cover, and cook on high, stirring occasionally, until tortellini is almost done
  • Stir in the peas
  • Uncover to let liquids reduce. Reduce heat to medium low, and stir in the mustard, cream and cheddar cheese
  • When cheese melts, top with chopped parsley, if using, and serve

Notes

This recipe calls for 1 20-ounce package of tortellini or 2 9-ounce packages. I used Buitoni brand. Using less than that will affect results. 
Sauce will be on the thin side. For a thicker sauce, use 2 cups of water, instead of 3 cups.
