  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound Italian sausage casings removed
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 medium carrot chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 14.5 ounce fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 cups tomato passata
  • 14 ounce cheese tortellini
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 cup fresh spinach chopped


  • Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the Italian sausage (casings removed) and cook until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon into small pieces, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the onion, carrot, celery to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to the pot and stir. Cook for 30 seconds until the garlic is fragrant, stirring to prevent it from burning.
  • Sprinkle the flour over everything and stir. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Gradually add in the chicken broth, then add the fire roasted tomatoes and tomato passata. Continue cooking until the soup comes a boil then reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the cheese tortellini and half and half. Cook for 10 more minutes or until the tortellini is al dente. Stir in the spinach and cook for a couple more minutes.
  • Garnish with parmesan cheese, basil and serve.



  1. Store your leftover tortellini soup in an airtight container in the fridge. This will allow your leftovers to keep for 3-5 days.
  2. To reheat your leftover soup, pop it in the microwave or back on the stove top until heated through.
