What We're Eating Part 1

I have decided to do a series on this blog. Every Monday I will post a recipe of what we are eating for dinner. I will try and do recipes that are relatively easy and cheap!

This week's recipe is Tortellini with Smoked Sausage & Edamame.

You will need:
1 package of frozen tortellini
1 smoked sausage link
1/2 a cup of frozen, shelled edamame
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese (optional)

First off, make sure that you get tortellini from the frozen section of your grocery store. Usually the brands that are sold in the deli section are a lot more expensive.

Slice up the sausage and brown in a frying pan. While the sausage is cooking, boil water and cook the tortellini according to package directions. Usually the tortellini and the sausage get done at about the same time. The edamame can be prepared several ways, but we usually just put 1/2 a cup in a bowl, cover with Saran Wrap and microwave for 2-3 minutes.

Drain the tortellini and place the noodles back in the pot. Add the sausage and edamame to the pot as well. Toss with olive oil. Then eat!!

We both love this recipe. We usually can get 2 dinners out of this. The tortellini is about $4/package, the sausage is $2.50 and the edamame is $1.50. That's an $8 meal that can feed both of us twice!!

Hope you try out this recipe and enjoy!
