A Favorite Tortellini Soup Recipe

  • This soup is ready in just over 30 minutes start to finish.
  • Italian sausage (hot or mild) adds great flavor but you can swap it out for your favorite ground meat.

  • Just one pot means less mess, fewer dishes, and easier clean-up.

Ingredients

MEAT Ground Italian sausage is used in this recipe. If you use other ground meats, you’ll want to boost the seasonings a bit with Italian seasoning and some extra salt! Fennel is the spice that gives Italian sausage it’s flavor so add a little if you have it.

BROTH I prefer a low sodium beef broth in this recipe but chicken broth will work. A little bit of cornstarch adds great texture to the broth just thickening it very slightly.

VEGGIES Onion adds flavor (feel free to throw in a couple of cloves of garlic too). The canned tomatoes add a bit of zest and texture, if you prefer you can use crushed tomatoes (or break up some canned whole tomatoes).

TORTELLINI Italian sausage makes this soup meaty so we prefer cheese tortellini in this recipe but feel free to use your favorite. Mini ravioli works too.

Pro Tip: Adding a little bit of cornstarch to the broth doesn’t thicken it but it does add a silky feel!

Variations

  • Add a splash of hot sauce or a few red pepper flakes for a touch of heat.
  • Any veggie goes from chopped carrots or bell pepper to mushrooms.
  • Add your favorite herbs like thyme, rosemary, or parsley.

How to Make Sausage Tortellini Soup

You’ll love how easy it is to make this tasty Italian-style soup! We love that this broth-based version skips the heavy cream.

  1. In a large soup pot or dutch oven, cook sausage & onion. Break it up with a wooden spoon cooking until no pink remains. Drain grease.

Kitchen Tips

  • To make prep quick, while the sausage is cooking prepare the other ingredients. While the soup is simmering, slice the zucchini.
  • Leftover meats and veggies can be added. If they are already cooked add them in the last few minutes since they just need to heat through.
  • Add the juices from the canned tomatoes.
  • Boost the flavor of this soup by adding a parmesan cheese rind (or vegetable juice like V8) to the broth as it simmers. Discard the rind before serving.

Make-Ahead & Leftovers

  • Pasta doesn’t keep well in soups, it will soak up the broth and get musry. If you plan for leftovers, cook the tortellini separately.
  • Keep tortellini soup covered in the refrigerator and it will last about 4 days.
  • Double the base of this soup (without tortellini) and freeze half for another day. Add any fresh pasta once thawed.
  • Freeze portions of soup in freezer bags, muffin tins, or a freezer container without pasta (or with the pasta on the side). Add tortellini or pasta once thawed
