  • 1 pound (500g) Italian sausage
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups (945ml) chicken broth or stock
  • 1 (14oz) (411g) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (14oz) (411g) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (10oz) (285g) refrigerated cheese tortellini (not dried or frozen)
  • 1 cup (235ml) heavy cream
  • 4 cups (120g) spinach
  1. In a large pot brown sausage and onion over medium heat until no longer pink and onions are translucent (about 5 min). Stir in garlic for 30 seconds.

  2. Stir in broth and tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in tortellini and heavy cream and simmer for 10 minutes max. Remove from heat and stir in spinach. 

Recipe Notes
  1. While you could swap out the Italian sausage for a different meat it will change the flavor drastically. Italian sausage already has so much flavor packed into it which is what flavors this soup.
  2. Feel free to use whatever flavor of tortellini you have on hand. I always use cheese tortellini but spinach tortellini would also be great!!
  3. Use fresh tortellini to keep this meal quick.
  4. Feel free to add other vegetables or swap out the spinach for kale. My family prefers baby spinach so that's what I use.
  5. Yes, I know there is heavy cream in this soup but it adds body and slightly thickens the soup. If you choose to use anything else it will alter the thickness of the soup som
  6. Nutrition info- Since different brands of ingredients have different nutritional information, the information shown is just an estimate.
