Sausage Tortellini Alfredo


1 (9-ounce) package refrigerated three cheese tortellini
1lb 3oz package brats (I used these)
2 tbsp unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, to taste


  • In large pot of boiling water, cook the tortellini according to package instructions, then drain and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, cook the brats until cooked through. Remove from pan, slice and set aside.
  • Leave the juices from cooking the sausage in the pan, then add the butter and allow it to melt.
  • Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring regularly, for about 1 minute.
  • Add the flour and whisk until lightly browned, about one minute.
  • Gradually add the milk and heavy whipping cream, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in the cheeses until melted. If you find the sauce is a little thick, you can always add a touch more milk.
  • Stir in the sausage and pasta and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
