Tortellini with Edamame and Smoked Sausage

Prep Time 30 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes

My kids love edamame straight from the shell, and they especially like them for dinner paired with two of their other favorites: smoked sausage and tortellini.

What you'll need

  • 1 pound frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup shelled edamame*
  • 1 cup diced red pepper
  • 1 pound smoked sausage
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing

How to make it

  1. Set 6 quarts of salted water to boil in a large pot.
  2. Meanwhile, chop red pepper and slice the smoked sausage into 1/4 inch-thick rounds.
  3. Stir-fry red pepper and sausage together until heated through -- about 5 minutes.
  4. Add tortellini to boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add edamame to water and boil for another 2 minutes. Drain tortellini and edamame well.
  6. Toss everything together with the Italian dressing and heat through one final time.
