Description

Hearty and creamy tortellini soup with sausage, spinach and kale is total comfort food in a bowl. Make this flavourful one pot meal in under 30 minutes.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups (24 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1 package (9 oz.) cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (or half and half cream)
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup kale, stems removed and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large pot for 2 minutes over medium high heat until the hot oil sizzles and shimmers. Add sausage and stir to cook for 5-7 minutes until browned. Break the sausages into small pieces using a spatula.
  2. Add onions and garlic and sauté until tender. Stir well to combine and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in flour until well combined, about 1 minute. Then, pour in tomato sauce. Turn the heat down to medium and stir well to combine. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Turn to low heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add tortellini and cook until tender, about 8-10 mins according to package directions. Stir occasionally to cook evenly.
  5. Add heavy cream and stir well to mix. Make sure the heat is on low and stir well to achieve a smooth creamy consistency. You should notice the soup turn into a creamy orange colour after adding heavy cream. Add in spinach and kale. Cook for 1 minute until soft.
  6. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh parsley on top and serve warm.
