Tortellini with Peas and Smoked Sausage

This meal was great quick and very simple! The family enjoyed it well except for the hubby because he has a problem with peas???   But I made it anyways and he just skimmed around them lol.  But it really is a wonderful dish!

1 pound frozen cheese tortellini
1 cup frozen peas

1 cup diced red pepper
1 pound smoked sausage
1/4 cup Italian dressing

  1. Set 6 quarts of salted water to boil in a large pot.
  2. Meanwhile, chop red pepper and slice the smoked sausage into 1/4 inch-thick rounds.
  3. Stir-fry red pepper and sausage together until heated through -- about 5 minutes.
  4. Add tortellini to boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add peas to water and boil for another 2 minutes. Drain tortellini and peas well.
  6. Toss everything together with the Italian dressing and heat through one final time.
