This tortellini soup is one of those that I would have skipped right over if my friend, Heather, hadn't made it for me one day for lunch. She knows I love soup, and so she whipped this up while also being a full-time mom to 3 little ones at the time. It was delicious and quick! It has become a repeat in our home - my kids enjoy it and it is filling! It is a one-pot meal, but you can always add bread and a side salad if you like!
Tortellini Soup with Sausage and Spinach
1/2 lb. Italian sausage
64 oz low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 - 1 cup water (add more or less as desired for your taste)
1 small onion, diced
1 - 2 package(s) cheese tortellini
1 bag fresh baby spinach
fresh shredded parmesan for topping soup
In a Dutch oven or large pot, brown sausage until cooked through, coarsely breaking apart as you brown it. Drain the oil.
Add diced onion and cook for a minute or 2 until tender.
Add in water and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and let simmer for 5-10 mins.
Return to a boil and add in tortellini. Cook for 7-10 mins or until tortellini is tender.
Stir in spinach leaves. Stir to wilt.
Serve in bowl and top with shredded parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy- and I hope you find it quick and easy to make for your family and friends!
