  1. Boil water in a large pot to boil the tortellini according to package directions.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add onion. Saute the onion for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened. Add sliced mushrooms, crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper and continue cooking for 5 minutes, add the sausage and saute mixing all together allowing the ingredients to caramelize and brown on the edges, about 5 more minutes.
  3. Add wine, bring to a low simmer for about 2 minutes, stirring and gently scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Pour in the Alfredo sauce, stir together.
  4. As it starts to bubble add the cheeses, stir to blend until melted. Add the hot cooked tortellini and fold over gently to coat the pasta. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.

This was A-MAZ-ING!! Very easy to put together and had a rich luscious cheesy flavor. Instead of the olive oil, cooked some bacon to chop and add in and used the drippings to saute the onion and mushrooms. Will definitely be making this again soon.

I think this dish has a lot of potential. I was really rich, but not in a good way. First I think 1/2 an onion would be plenty. That combined with Gorgonzola cheese was too much. It's all I can taste now. I bought Johnsons Cheddar sausage me and my husband didn't like this type of sausage it was a little too much like a hot dog. I think if less onion was used, different sausage and maybe different cheese proportions it could be a winner. If I get the courage up to give this recipe a second chance I will make changes.

Very good. Didn't really like the sausage flavor. Next time will make without the meat. Very filling. Great pasta dish.

This recipe is AMAZING! It is a little more expensive to buy all of the cheese for the ingredients, however, it is totally worth it. You won't be disappointed.

Changed up the cheeses a bit to use what I had and used a different sausage because the one listed wasn't available. I used a spicier sausage to cut through all the creaminess. Super yummy. will do again.

I loved this recipe. I usually do not make things with less than a few hundred "loved" it ratings but I'm glad I did with this recipe. I had to use a few different substitutions since I was snowed in but it was absolutely delicious. I used sweet Italian sausage for the chicken sausage, Blue cheese for the Gorgonzola, smoked Gouda for Fontina and made my own Alfredo sauce using the "quick & easy alfredo sauce recipe" from this site.

It was a good quick meal for my family. Everyone liked it and I would make it again. The only thing I did differently was the meat. My grocery store was out of the sausage, so I used chicken, which was probably a better choice for my family anyway.

This was great! I did not use sausage, but simply crumbled some bacon into the mixture at the time the recipe called for the sausage. Didn't change anything other than also added some fresh spinach to the onions and mushrooms. I'm not a gorgonzola fan but I was making this for the gorgonzola fan in my life, and I'll admit that I really enjoyed it! :)
