Welcome to the first ever 30 Minute Thursday! I have teamed up with a few of my favorite food bloggers to bring you a fun and easy 30 minute meal every first Thursday of the month! I hope you enjoy this series and love making these meals as much as we loved creating them!

There was a time that a 30 minute meal didn’t mean anything to me. I used to have a flexible schedule and whipping up dinner meant I could make anything I wanted to tackle. Braised lamb and homemade pita, no problem. Beef Bolognese sauce from scratch, absolutely. But when Stella came, everything changed.

The days are long but the years are short. From 6am to 9pm she has me running up and down the stairs, chasing her through the kitchen, and picking up toys only to have her pull them all out again. After bath time she somehow manages to mash banana into her hair or smear her face with peanut butter which leads to a second bath. And of course there are the changes of clothes, teething days and endless episodes on the Disney channel.

Being a mom is pretty crazy..but you know what is even crazier? That I absolutely love it. I wouldn’t want it any other way. Which means I have had to be a little creative when it comes to dinner time. 30 minute meals are a way of life. We keep it really simple around here!

I absolutely love this easy Smoked Turkey Sausage Tortellini Pasta! I just line a pan with foil and pop all the veggies, onions and sausage on a pan to roast. While that is cooking, I boil the tortellini. When everything is finished, I just toss it all in a simple olive oil and roasted garlic sauce. Voila, dinner is done.

With plenty of time to spare for another bath for Stella. 😉

    Tortellini is seriously my FAV kind of pasta and I’m always up for anything veggie + sausage loaded so this whole meal is just so up my alley! I need to make this for labor day weekend for sure!

  2. says

    I love your stories about chasing Stella around and her needing multiple baths…aren’t kids the greatest? 😉 Life is crazy with them, but it wouldn’t be the same without them. haha Looks like we both had tortellini on the brain, and I love your version! So easy and it looks so great with that smoked turkey sausage and all the veggies! Pinned.

    what a pretty dish!!! looks like an amazing dinner that I will have to make soon. I think that’s all I have time for these days, really quick and easy dinners 🙂

    I love how colorful this dish is!! So pretty! I definitely want kids someday, but it is nice to be able to take your time in the kitchen, lol. I really take that for granted right now! I am trying to make more 30 minute meals just so I can stay slightly sane though! I love this tortellini 🙂

    I am seriously going to go down the list because I won’t have to plan dinner for a loooong time! Thanks for putting this together, it’s a great idea!

      Aw thanks Liz. But I have to admit that sometimes I just want to sip boozy milkshakes on a Friday afternoon…you have the dream life 😉

    • Mariah Mercurio says

      I totally agree! It has been a growing experience but I love it! I don’t know how you keep up with 3! You are amazing!

    This is a lovely recipe, but what kind of Tortellini are you using….freshly made, or the ‘dried kind’ in a package? I can only find “CoraBella” dried Tortellini (in a package) here, and it comes in 8 oz. pkgs. Its very good after it’s cooked, but there’s no way that I’d use 20 ozs. of it in this recipe….since each 8 oz. bag (when cooked) produces 3-4 servings. Please reply. BTW, I recently signed-up to receive your blogs in my in-box. I love your recipes!

      Hi Angela! I used Buitoni Tortellini, the freshly made kind that you can find in the refrigerator section of your grocery store. I was able to find a 9 oz. package that was for 2.5 servings but you could really use any amount of pasta that you like, this recipe scales well. Here is the link the pasta. I would use two of these packages to serve 6 or only one package to serve 3.
