Soup, it’s what’s for dinner! In the cold winter months, it’s already dark before we sit down to eat dinner, and on those days, there’s just something comforting and cozy about a steaming hot bowl of soup. This Sausage and Tortellini Soup is everything I want this time of year.

Hearty, flavorful, and most importantly, this meal is easy! I make it using store-bought tortellini from Giovanni Rana, fresh baby spinach, ground sausage, plus a few pantry staples, and this whole dish comes together in a snap!

Sausage, Spinach and Tortellini Soup

Easy, healthy, and totally comforting, this soup is everything you want for dinner on a cold day!

Servings 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Italian sausage mild or spicy
  • 20 oz. Fresh Cheese Tortellini
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 14 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 48 oz. chicken broth
  • 6-8 oz. baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley chopped, optional
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • crushed red pepper to taste, optional

Instructions

  1. Brown the sausage. In a large, heavy-bottomed stock pot, brown the sausage over medium heat, breaking apart as it cooks. Drain the excess grease — optional, but I prefer a less greasy broth.

  2. Add the onion & garlic. Finely chop the onion and garlic and stir them into the cooking sausage. Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant.

  3. Add the broth & tomatoes. Pour the broth and tomatoes, stir, and bring to a simmer.

  4. Add the tortellini. Stir in the tortellini and cook together for about 3-4 minutes (fresh tortellini cooks very quickly, but if you’re using frozen, just cook according to the directions on the package).

  5. Add the spinach. Just before you’re ready to serve, stir in the baby spinach and cook together just until it’s gently wilted. You can do this one or two handfuls at a time, if that fits better in your pot.

  6. Serve. Season to taste with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper, if using. Divide the soup into bowls and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
