Sausage and Spinach Tortellini Soup Recipe

Sausage and Spinach Tortellini Soup Recipe

MY husband's grandmother used to make this soup with her own homemade sausage and homemade tortellini. Since it has been passed down, we don’t “hand make” those ingredients but it’s almost as good as hers. It’s a great way to get the kids to eat spinach!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups torn fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cup refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in broth and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Return to a boil. Reduce heat, add spinach and tortellini; cook for 7-9 minutes or until tortellini is tender. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 2 servings.

"This is an excellent and easy soup recipe. I increased the recipe by using a box of chicken broth, a can of undiluted chicken broth, 3 cups of torn spinach, 3 cups of frozen cheese tortellini and 1 lb of bulk mild Italian sausage. The sausage I bought from the store was seasoned with anise. The aroma of the anise was wonderful and added just the right seasoning to the soup. I married into an Italian family and this recipe is a keeper. I'm only sorry I didn't have any home made stock at the time."
