My family devoured this and they all came back for seconds! Even my picky three year old ate two bowls of it! It was a huge hit!

One Pot Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce Ingredients

You’ll need one pound of Italian sausage, diced onion, garlic, frozen tortellini, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, KRAFT PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, KRAFT Italian Five Cheese shredded cheese, a jar of spaghetti sauce, spinach and salt and pepper. I stock up on KRAFT PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese at Sam’s Club where I can buy it in bulk and save money. I freeze it and thaw it when I need it!

One Pot Sausage Tortellini

First brown your Italian sausage and onion in a large pot with a little olive oil in it. Cook until no longer pink.
