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!

Main Ingredients

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.
