Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add cheese tortellini and boil until they float to the top. Do not over boil.
While pasta boils, add olive oil to a large frying pan. Fry and crumble sausage until brown. Don’t drain. Add salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Mix well. Add tomatoes and olives. Mix well.
Drain pasta and add back to pot. Add sausage mixture and combine thoroughly. Serve immediately.
I serve this with a nice green salad and garlic ciabatta bread.
