Kind of a One Pot Pasta

We all know I love easy flavorful cooking. I was out grocery shopping for a whole other reason and I got hungry. I didnt know what to eat so I created a dish in my head, got the ingredients and viola! A kind of a one pot pasta was created. Tortellini and Sausage bake to be exact. You can easily play around with this recipe by being creative with the veggies and substituting sausage with chicken or no meat at all making it vegan. Either way this recipe is easy and yummy. Served along side with fresh greens tossed with creamy ranch, dinner rolls and of course a glass of wine (for my 21 and up)!




Tortellini Sausage Bake


  • 1lb tortellini pasta, cooked
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 13oz sausage link, sliced
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 8oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 24oz pasta sauce
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add your sausage to a skillet with olive oil and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Let them char up a bit.
  3. Add your onion and mushroom, stir well and cook for 5-7 minutes. (If needed add a little more olive oil)
  4. Add your garlic paste, stir in well and cook for 1 minute. Turn off heat!
  5. Combine your cooked tortellini, pasta sauce and heavy cream. Mix well.
  6. Now, combine your sausage mixture with your pasta. Mix well and pour into a baking dish.
  7. Top with mozzarella and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Turn your broiler on for 5 minutes to crisp up the top.
  9. Let your pasta bake cool for 5 minutes and top with fresh herbs. Enjoy!

Snowed in Breakfast/Brunch

So with this snow storm having most of us snowed in, what’s there to do but cook? I made myself this easy one pan flavorful brunch. Bacon and eggs over asparagus and mushrooms. Simply seasoned with salt, pepper and bacon fat!

Don’t want bacon? Try turkey bacon or no bacon at all. Add more mushrooms. Like a meaty portobello. Add some sliced onions or tomatoes. Top this with some fresh chopped parsley. Get creative, happy cooking!



Eggs and Bacon over Asparagus


  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 10 asparagus spears
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 mushrooms, sliced
  • salt + pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Prepare a sheet pan with foil (for easy cleanup).
  2. Bake your bacon for 10 minutes or until crispy. When done remove bacon to paper towel lined plate.
  3. Add your asparagus, roll in bacon fat. Add more oil if needed. Add mushrooms as well, season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Carefully crack your eggs over the asparagus, season with salt and pepper. Carefully place back in oven for another 6 minutes. Place your bacon back on to warm up.
  5. Add some cheese, fresh herbs or whatever. Get creative and enjoy!
