Sausage Meatballs and Tortellini

I am in the midst of moving my daughter back to college. I was supposed to post yesterday; life got in the way. As I was thinking about what should I post, I thought of all the parents doing exactly what I am doing — running around getting kids ready for school. Some have already started school. Nothing is more straightforward than a one-pot meal on the table fast during the chaos of busy school nights. I love this because it’s hearty and easy. Serve this with salad and some warm bread to soak up any sauce left on your plate.
