So I recently tried a recipe from Todd Toven he self named the Toddilini. I thought it was good but felt it was missing something. So after some experimenting I’ve reworked his Toddilini and created this awesome Pesto Tortellini with Kielbasa Sausage on the Blackstone Griddle.

This Pesto Tortellini with Kielbasa Sausage is a nice, cheesy dinner with the perfect touch of pesto sauce. The pesto tortellini and sausage is accompanied by delicious veggies such as red bell peppers, onions, grape tomatoes and even spinach.

It is so easy to make that we even cook it on the Blackstone while camping. It is also very versatile in which if you don’t like an ingredient you can simply omit it, or add another favorite.

How to Make Pesto Tortellini with Kielbasa Sausage on the Blackstone

Pesto Tortellini with Kielbasa Sausage on the Blackstone - Add Tortellini

For this recipe I’m using a tortellini pasta from Costco, but I’ve had excellent tortellini right out of Walmart’s frozen section. Start out by adding the tortellini to the Blackstone Griddle. Ensure there is enough oil so that they don’t stick.
