How to make Creamy Sausage Tortellini Soup
Brown 1 pound of Italian sausage for 4-5 minutes over medium heat in a large pot or Dutch oven. Remove the sausage when it’s done then set aside in a paper towel lined bowl to absorb any excess grease. You can either use ground sausage or you can remove the casing from sausages and break up the meat.
Saute onion, 1 cup of chopped carrots and 3 cloves of minced garlic for 5 minutes over medium-low heat.
Add 1 tbsp Italian seasoning, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/4 cup flour and 6oz tomato paste then let it cook for 2-3 minutes.
Pour in and deglaze the bottom of the pot with 6 cups of chicken broth and 1 cup of heavy whipping cream. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to remove any browned bits.
Add the sausage back in, 9oz of tortellini and 3 cups of chopped spinach then bring the pot of soup to a simmer for 5 minutes.
Serve the warm bowl of soup with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy with a Caesar salad and a side of garlic bread.
Be sure to make some extra for leftovers or meal prep! Store the soup in an airtight container for 3-4 days and warm up when you’re ready to eat.
