Sausage Tortellini Soup
Italian sausage tortellini soup is my go-to when I have fresh tortellini on hand. It pairs perfectly and is so savory and comforting. Plus this recipe is great for meal prepping for the week.
Meal Prepping With Soup
You can use this soup to meal prep for the week on easy lunches or even a dinner idea. Or toss leftovers in your freezer to prep for meals down the line.
The pasta will become a bit soggier once it is thawed from being frozen, but it will still taste incredible!
Italian Sausage | Italian Sausage is a key ingredient in this soup recipe. It adds bold flavor in every single bite. Pair with all the veggies and broth and it is just incredible.
Cheese Filled Tortellini | Reach for the tortellini in the refrigerator section at the store. Fresh tortellini over the dried or frozen will really amplify the flavors. I will never buy dried again after trying fresh.
Vegetables and Spices | All the fresh vegetables paired with the spices are going to really bring the soup together. It takes just a few minutes to chop and prep veggies to toss into the soup.
How To Make
Step 1: Start by cooking your raw Italian sausage in your pot or skillet. Chop up and cook until no longer pink.
Step 2: Now you will toss in your fresh vegetables, tomatoes, spices, followed by your stock.
Step 3: You will bring the mixture to a boil then reduce heat and let cook 15-20 minutes to help blend all the flavors. Stir occasionally as it heats on the stove.
Step 4: Once it has simmered, you will then pour in your fresh tortellini. Cook for another 5-10 minutes and then serve with parmesan cheese on top.
