CHEESY SAUSAGE TORTELLINI SKILLET

Cheesy Sausage and Tortellini Skillet - TSLC - CopyThis Cheesy Sausage Tortellini Skillet recipe quickly became a favorite at my house.  It is so fast and easy to make on top of the stove.  I can make a meal of this alone but add a salad and bread for a great meal for family and friends. If you like pasta, you will love this dish. Most men really go for it because it is filling and great comfort food.

1 pound pork sausage

1 medium onion,  chopped

1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 clove of garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon basil

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Pinch cayenne or a few drops hot sauce, Optional

1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes in puree

1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained

3 cups refrigerated 3 cheese tortellini (I use Brutoni Three Cheese Tortellini), uncooked

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Chopped fresh parsley for garnish, Optional

Brown the sausage with the onion, green pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, black pepper, salt and cayenne in a large skillet.  Add the crushed tomatoes and green chilis. Add tortellini and stir well. Turn heat to simmer, cover skillet and let cook 25 minutes or until pasta is done. Remove skillet from heat, sprinkle on the mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Cover until cheese melts. Garnish with fresh parsley.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  This is good reheated in the microwave and will keep for several days in the refrigerator.  I have not tried freezing it but would think you could with no problem. You could also cut this recipe in half.

BUTTERY CHEDDAR SCONES

TSLCButterCheeseScone3

These little buttery scones are great as appetizers served with your favorite jams and jellies.  They go great with any kind of soup or with any meal, too. Good with coffee or milk.  They will keep several days in a cool place in an air tight container and can be reheated.

2 cups self-rising flour

1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal (You could use regular cornmeal)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

pinch cayenne or about 1/8 teaspoon

1 stick butter or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons,  softened

2 eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Sea salt, Optional

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar and cayenne in a large mixing bowl.  Cut the butter in small pieces and cut into the flour mixture until resembles coarse crumbs.  Add the eggs, sour cream and buttermilk and stir with spoon.  Fold in the cheddar cheese.  Place dough on a floured surface and roll out in a square.  You can cut out square scones with a pizza cutter or use a square biscuit cutter.  You can make large squares and cut in half to make triangle scones.  Place on a sprayed baking sheet and bake in 425 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Makes about 24 scones depending on size you make them.  Enjoy.

Note:  I use unsalted butter and brush the tops before cooking with a little melted butter then sprinkle with sea salt. The cornmeal makes them a little crunchy.

FRESH TOMATO BREAD

Fresh Tomato Bread TSLC

This recipe for Fresh Tomato Bread will go great with any meal.  This bread is good toasted with butter, too.  A great way to use up some of your fresh tomatoes from the garden.

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter, melted

2 eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

1/3 cup chopped onion

1 cup peeled and chopped or mashed tomatoes

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, oregano, black pepper and salt.  Add melted butter, eggs, sour cream, buttermilk, mayonnaise, chopped onion and tomatoes.  Mix well with a spoon.  Fold in cheese.  Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with cooking spray.  Add your bread mixture.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 60 to 65 minutes checking to see if bread is done since ovens vary.  Makes 1 loaf.  Enjoy!

Note:  I have not tried this bread any other way other than the recipe nor have I tried freezing it.  I had an abundance of ripe tomatoes and just came up with the recipe for the first time this week. If your tomatoes are really juicy, you might try draining some of the juice before adding to the recipe.

Tip:  To easily remove the peeling from tomatoes submerge in boiling water for 15 seconds and remove with a slotted spoon. Skins will slip right off.
