Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage casings removed
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 large carrot chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound cheese tortellini (1 package)
  • 10 ounce spinach roughly chopped
  • 2 cups half and half cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the sausage: Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot and add the sausage. Cook the sausage until browned, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks. Transfer the sausage to a plate.
  • Cook the vegetables: Add the onion, celery, carrot to the pot and stir. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the onion softens. Add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds until aromatic.
  • Add Flour and broth: Sprinkle the flour over the veggies, stir and cook for another minute. Pour in the chicken broth to the pot, stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Combine all ingredients: Add the sausage back to the pot, tortellini, spinach and cream. Stir everything together and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or until the tortellini is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  • Serve: Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Freeze without adding in the cream. When thawed and heating up, add the cream then, for the best consistency.
  2. Freeze fresh tortellini and when ready to make this soup, you always have this ingredient. You may need to increase the cooking time to compensate for the frozen state.
  3. Let cool completely and place in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  4. Store in a large airtight container or in individual containers for 2–3 months in the freezer.
