I got a similar recipe to this out of my local newspaper a long time ago. I've tweaked the recipe quite a bit over the years to suit our tastes. I hope this tortellini soup suits your family as well. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large pot over medium-low heat. Cook sausage and onion until onion is soft and translucent, breaking up sausage as it cooks, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 to 2 minutes more.

  • Pour all chicken broth into the pot and bring to a boil, about 5 minutes. Add tortellini and cook 5 minutes more. Add tomatoes with juice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer soup for 10 minutes.

  • Stir spinach into soup; it will look like too much, but it will wilt quickly. Add basil and red pepper flakes and simmer 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Pass Parmesan cheese at the table when you serve the soup.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to use dried basil in place of fresh. Substitute hot sausage for mild, if you like.

Incredibly aromatic, the whole house smelled wonderful. Only change was to add a Syrah Grenache to delglaze. Fabulous taste, a def keeper! Read More

This soup is a home run! Delicious and hearty. We used ground Italian chicken sausage; that paired with the broth and the cheese tortellini- BRAVA!! This makes a pot full and goes far. I had leftovers for lunch for two days and the soup was delicious straight away AND later. Read More
