Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Italian sausage (mild or spicy, based on your preference)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 9 ounces fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Step 1: Cook the Italian Sausage

  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Remove the sausage from its casing and crumble it into the pot. Cook the sausage, breaking it apart with a spoon as it browns, until it’s no longer pink. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Step 2: Add Aromatics and Vegetables

  1. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, diced carrot, and diced celery to the pot with the cooked sausage. Sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the onions are translucent.

Step 3: Add Tomatoes and Broth

  1. Stir in the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil.

Step 4: Simmer and Add Tortellini

  1. Reduce the heat to low and let the soup simmer for about 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  2. Add the fresh or frozen cheese tortellini to the soup. Cook according to the package instructions, typically for about 5-7 minutes or until the tortellini is tender and cooked through.

Step 5: Add Spinach and Serve

  1. Stir in the chopped fresh spinach and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, just until it wilts.
  2. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed.

Step 6: Garnish and Serve

  1. Ladle the Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup into serving bowls.
  2. Garnish each bowl with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves if desired.

Enjoy!

This hearty Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup is a comforting and flavorful meal that's perfect for any day of the week. Serve it with some crusty bread for a complete and satisfying Italian-inspired dinner. Buon appetito!

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces Italian sausage see note
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped finely
  • 2 sticks celery chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juices
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 generous cups refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 2 cups (packed) fresh baby spinach optional
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the sausage meat to a large soup pot. Sauté over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for 7-10 minutes, or until the sausage is browned all over.

  • Take the sausage out of the pot and set it aside on a paper towel lined plate. Leave about a tablespoon of the fat in the pot (drain any excess).

  • Add the onion and celery to the pot and cook for 4 minutes or so, then add the flour and garlic and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. 

  • Add the chicken broth slowly and stir until the flour has completely dissolved. 

  • Add the canned tomatoes and Italian seasoning to the pot. Also add the sausage back in. Increase the heat to high and bring the soup to a gentle boil. 

  • Once it's boiling, add the tortellini and reduce the heat so it's gently simmering. Cook for 5 minutes.

  • Stir in the cream and cook for another 5 minutes.

  • Stir in the spinach and season with salt & pepper to taste.

Notes

  • For the sausages, anything around the 16 ounce/1 pound ballpark is fine - it doesn't need to be exact. You can either buy ground sausage meat or, if using whole sausages, take the meat out of the casings.
