2 tbsp unsalted butter
(1) (8 oz) package of baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
1 c of dry white wine (such as Pinot Grigio), divided
(3) cloves garlic, minced, divided
10 ounces mild Italian sausage, casings removed
1 (16 oz) package three-cheese tortellini
14 ½ ounces basil pesto sauce (such as Prego®)
1 (5 oz) package baby spinach leaves
In a large, deep skillet, add and heat the butter over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms, 1/2 cup white wine, and a clove minced garlic until liquid has reduced and mushrooms have softened about 5 minutes. Take away from the heat and place in a bowl.
Heat the same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir Italian sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes, dividing it into bite-sized portions while stirring. Remove excess grease by placing paper towels onto a plate and dumping browned sausage onto it to drain, and then return the sausage to the skillet.
Return cooked mushrooms to the skillet with sausage and add tortellini, basil pesto sauce, remaining 1/2 cup white wine, and remaining garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low. Coof for 10 minutes, covered, stirring occasionally. Add spinach, and then cover and cook until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes more. Mix well to combine. Remove from heat and serve.
