Tortellini Soup

Updated: Nov 17, 2020


This soup is like the ultimate comfort food for me, it's like the best of both worlds between pasta and soup. I love tortellini, and honestly after trying it in this soup, this is my favorite way to eat it. The broth is flavorful and creamy, but much lighter than a typical pasta dish, so it doesn't feel too heavy when you get a bite of tortellini or sausage.



Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp butter

  • 1 onion diced

  • 4 cloves garlic minced

  • 1 carrot diced

  • 2 stalks of celery diced

  • 2 12 oz packages of chicken sausages chopped

  • 28 oz can of diced tomatoes

  • 1 can of Rotel

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 2 cups of water

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 2 tsp sage

  • 1 tsp oregano

  • 1 tsp thyme

  • Pinch of chili flakes

  • 1 8oz package cream cheese

  • 20oz package of cheese tortellini

  • 5 oz (about 4 cups) spinach chopped


Directions:


In a large pot over medium high heat melt the butter. Toss in the diced onion and sauté until softened. Add in the garlic, carrot, and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next mix in the chopped sausage and cook for 3 minutes more stirring frequently.


Pour in the tomatoes, Rotel, broth, water, and spices then simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.


Stir in the cream cheese, when it is fully melted add in the tortellini and spinach. Simmer until the tortellini is fully cooked through, about 15 more minutes.
