Bon appétit! Get fancy with this recipe for creamy sausage tortellini.
I’m not known for my stellar cooking skills.
The Husband will tell you that I’m an excellent cook, but I firmly believe that’s because he worries that if he doesn’t, I’ll stop trying all together.
I wouldn’t say that I’m terrible in the kitchen, as long as the recipe is simple and easy to follow.
A few months ago, I started following Luke Brown on Facebook because his recipes not only look amazing, they’re pretty simple.
(You can also access his website here.)
Last week I spotted one of Luke’s videos on how to make this creamy sausage tortellini.
And you guys… Oh. Em. Gee!
It’s so good!
I’m currently keeping a skillet of this deliciousness warm on the stove and I cannot wait until The Husband gets home.
He’s going to be so impressed!
Thanks Luke! And bon appétit!
