Sausage and Tortellini Soup

October 17, 2019

Just bookmark this post because you’re going to want to make this soup.

We are in the throws of a chilly rainstorm here in New Hampshire – they’ve actually called it a N’orester on the news, and the power went out for a little while during the night thanks to tree limbs. On my morning walk with the twins it was so windy, and our  neighborhood is carpeted with leaves and branches and pine needles everywhere.

All signs point to making more of this soup. The kids loved it when I made this for lunch last Friday and I loved how it brought us all together in the middle of their day off from school. A pot of soup and a loaf of bread will do that.

There is something so perfect about the combination of sausage and tortellini. When they are in a flavorful broth with a touch of cream, they’re even more comforting.

The turkey sausage I used was just a little bit spicy, and all my kids loved it. If your kids don’t try using sweet sausage instead.

This soup is just what I was looking for to add to our fall repertoire. Its comforting, sort of healthy, and combines some of our favorite ingredients.

This soup is good enough for company and easy enough for a busy weeknight. It’s the perfect addition to your fall menu – hope you get to try it soon! Happy Eating, xoxo Katie

Sausage & Tortellini Soup (serves 6-8)
6 Turkey Italian Sausages
3 teaspoons of dry Italian seasoning
1 onion, small dice
6 carrots, small dice
4 tablespoons of flour
8 cups of chicken stock
1/4 head of cabbage, shredded
1 bag of spinach
1 package of tortellini
1/2 cup of cream
1 tsp. salt
Heat pan on medium heat, and remove sausages from casings and brown in a large pot, breaking with the spoon as it cooks.  Add onions and carrots and continue to cook.  Add the dry seasoning and flour and stir in to soak up all of the fat from the sausage.  Cook for 2 minutes until all of the flour is mixed in.  Add chicken stock and stir up all the bits on bottom of pan, and simmer for 5 minutes until its bubbling. Add cabbage, spinach and tortellini. Add cream and salt and taste to see if it needs more. Let cook for about 5-10 more minutes on low until the tortellini is warmed through.
