• Uncle Joe loves to top this dish with Grana Padano cheese. If you cannot find it in your store, grated Pecorino Romano cheese is a great substitute. You can also add other vegetables to this dish such as mushrooms or zucchini.
• Heat medium skillet with 3 Tbsp of olive oil and cook sausage links. Brown on all sides until sausage is cooked thoroughly and set aside.
• Add remaining olive oil to the skillet and cook red and orange peppers until tender, approximately 5 minutes. Set aside.
• In medium pot add one jar of Uncle Joe’s Vodka Celebration and ¼ cup of heavy cream. Heat until sauce mixture is warm.
• Cook tortellini according to package directions.
• While tortellini is cooking, slice sausage into 1 inch pieces and add to the sauce. Add peppers and stir through. Simmer for 5 minutes.
• Drain pasta and add to your favorite pasta bowl. Pour sauce, sausage, and peppers over the tortellini.
• Add crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat and top with grated
Pecorino Romano cheese.
