Any dish that I can make in one skillet is awesome in my book.  Make it super quick and you definitely have my full attention.

Using tortellini is a great option because they cook so quickly.  Plus, you have the added flavor of cheese on the inside and that is always a good idea.

What is the Best Skillet to use?

The best skillet for a one pan meal like this is a 10 or 12 inch skillet with a high edge {like 2 inches}.  You want to find one with a lid and non stick is preferable.

Add your oil to a warm pan and cook onion until it is translucent.

Add garlic and and sliced sausage to the pan and continue cooking until the sausage is browned.  Be sure to stir because the garlic will burn if you are not careful.

Pour in the chicken stock and stir to remove any of the brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.  This is flavor and we want to get all we can from this dish.

Followed by the package of tortellini.  I used frozen but you could also use fresh if it is available.

Stir to combine all of the ingredients and bring mixture to a boil.

Once the mixture boils, reduce heat to a simmer.  Add the lid and continue to cook with the lid on for 7 minutes.  During that time the tortellini will cook and the broccoli will steam.
