Tortellini Alfredo Sausage Bake!

Hi Everyone!

So, last week I tried these Tofurky Italian Sausages for the first time, and let me tell you…they are GOOD! I’ve used Field Roast Sausages before, but my store was out of Field Roast, so being a new Tofurky fan, I decided to try these!

You guys…I love them! They are much milder than the Field Roast brand, so when I want something lighter, I’m going to opt for these! (Later, I’ll show you a few recipes where the Field Roast are perfect, but today is not that day!) 😉

I actually bought these for another recipe, but I only wanted to use half the pack, so this recipe was formed to “use up” the leftover sausages! I could have put them in the freezer for later, but I really wanted to use them, and I’m glad I did, because…

Yumminess was born!

Okay…try to ignore the unfortunate green background in that pic, and look at this instead:

Or this…

Just look at all that goodness! Trust me guys…this bake is AMAZING!

Here’s how to make it:

Tortellini Alfredo Sausage Bake

(Vegetarian, Serves 6)

Ingredients:
1 bag (12 oz) dry Cheese Tortellini
2 Vegetarian Sausage Links
1 jar (22 oz) Alfredo Sauce
2 bags (10.8 oz, each) frozen, Broccoli Florets
Cooking Spray

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375. Start heating the water for the pasta, and lightly grease a 9x13in baking dish with cooking spray. Place the dish aside. Start steaming the broccoli in the microwave according to package directions.

2. Slice the sausages into rounds about 1/4-inch thick, and heat in a medium skillet lined with cooking spray over low heat until lightly browned. When the water for the pasta is ready, cook the pasta according to the package directions.

3. When the broccoli is done, cut the trees into smaller, bite sized pieces.

4. When everything is done, add the cooked ingredients to a large bowl. Slowly stir in the Alfredo sauce, about 1/3 of the jar at a time. Gently mix in the entire jar of sauce until everything is thoroughly combined.

5. Dump the contents of the bowl into the prepared baking dish, and spread the mixture evenly in the dish. Bake for 15 minutes, or until heated through.

6. Serve & enjoy! 🙂

Welcome!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my brand-new blog, Bake It Veggie!

My name is Brenda, and almost two years ago, I jumped into vegetarianism with both feet, and I never looked back! (Okay…I looked back a little at bacon, but it was just looking! LOL!) Honestly, going meat-free was easy for me, but I know I’m the exception and not the rule!

In fact, everyone I know (except for The Fisherman) is a die-hard carnivore…and that means they don’t care about the new “veggie” thing I found in the store yesterday, or the challenges (and successes) of eating meat-free while on a road-trip!

And that’s where the idea for this blog came from! I wanted a place to share my vegetarian journey, and everything that goes with it! That means I’ll share new finds, product reviews, cuddle-cow pics, recipes, and…well, who knows! I’m kind of making this up as I go! LOL!

What I do know is that everything I share will be good for you, good for the planet, and good for the animals! Those are the things that are important to me, and hopefully, if you’re reading this, they’re important to you, too!

If this sounds fun, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram! 🙂

Until next time!
