Meat Lover's Tortellini Skillet

Meat Lover's Tortellini Skillet: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

My family was split on this recipe. Two loved it and two did not. My husband and oldest daughter did not like it while my youngest daughter and I loved it. I did not get how could you not like it!? Sausage, bacon, pepperoni, cheese and tortellini, what's not to love. Come to find out my husband and youngest daughter do not like tortellini. Not sure what it is about tortellini they do not like, because they like ravioli and both are a cheese filled pasta. Oh well, my youngest daughter and I were more than happy to eat the leftovers.
