Shrimp and Sausage Tortellini with Asparagus and Sundried Tomatoes

I created this while looking through my refrigerator and freezer to find random ingredients to throw together.  It turned out delicious!

Serves 2


2 frozen, pre-cooked sausage links (I used Casual Gourmet Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Chicken Sausage)
1 Cup thawed frozen shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
2 Tbsp olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
1/2 Cup dry white wine
1/2 small yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
1 package cheese tortellini
1/4 Cup sundried tomatoes
2 asparagus stalks, cut into 1" pieces
Dash crushed red pepper
parmesan cheese (to top it with)


In one pan, boil water and cook tortellini.  Drain and set aside.

In another pan, sautee onions and garlic in olive oil until onions are tender.  Add asparagus and sundried tomatoes.  Add sausage links and shrimp.  Sautee on medium heat to cook shrimp and fully heat sausage.  Add lemon juice and white wine.  Add salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes.  Toss with tortellini and top with parmesan cheese.
