Tortellini & Sausage in a Tomato Cream Sauce

Tortellini & Sausage in a Tomato Cream Sauce

1 package (14 oz.) Kielbasa, cut into pieces
1/2 cup onion, diced (optional)
1 cup chicken broth (or water)
1 (28 oz.) can of whole tomatoes; cut up inside the can
1 (20 oz.) package of tortellini (I used mixed cheese tortellini)
2 tablespoons cream cheese, diced (I used 4 Tbsp. whipped cream cheese from a small tub)
2 cups shredded cheese (I used cheddar cheese & Mozzarella cheese)

Saute the onion in 1 tbsp. oil in a large skillet on medium heat until soft. Add sliced kielbasa and cook until browned.  Add chicken broth, tortellini and tomatoes.  Bring to a boil; then turn heat down to low, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes or until pasta is done. Remove from heat and stir in shredded cheese & cream cheese. Cover and let stand for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted & blended.
