Italian Tomato, Sausage & Tortellini Souup

 By: The Food Hunter

A steamy bowl of soup is one of my favorite things to eat year-round. I love bean soups and chicken soups and I especially appreciate hearty tomato-based soups. This tomato tortellini soup is perfect, especially as it's made in one pot and doesn't involve a lot of prep or clean-up. Made from scratch, with ingredients you already have in your pantry, this easy soup recipe makes weeknight dinners a breeze. 


 Italian Tomato, Sausage & Tortellini Soup

1lb Italian sausage
2 Tbs olive oil
2 stems fresh rosemary
2 stems fresh thyme
6 cups chicken broth
1 12 oz bag of baby spinach
2 roasted red bell peppers
1 lb cheese filled tortellini
1 28 ounce can diced Italian tomatoes
3 garlic cloves minced

  • Heat oil in a large pot. Add sausage and cook till brown. Remove sausage and set aside. 
  • Add garlic and cook 3 minutes over medium heat. 
  • Add tomatoes, chicken broth, herbs and peppers. Allow to simmer for at least 30 minutes. 
  • In the meantime cook the tortellini in boiling water. When the pasta is partially cooked drain and add to tomato mixture. 
  • Add reserved sausage which has been cut into disks. Cook for several minutes until pasta is done. 
  • Serve immediately with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
