Tortellini With Shrimp & Kielbasa

Although this recipe has kielbasa in it, I used our reindeer kielbasa that we had shipped from Alaska. However, for this recipe, any kielbasa will work. The reindeer kielbasa was very good with its own unique taste. On the package of the reindeer kielbasa the ingredients listed had pork first, beef second and the reindeer meat was fifth. It was definitely delicious and I am glad we ordered it! I created this recipe to be easy and it turned out to be very tasty too! My husband loved it and asked me if he will ever get to eat it again because I make a different recipe for my blog every day….hahahaIMG_8550To make this dish, first cook the tortellini according to the package directions.IMG_8554Put 1 Tbls oil in a fry pan and brown kielbasa.IMG_8556Cook the shrimp in boiling water according to the directions on the package.
