This soup is so easy to whip up, and you only need one pan. You start by browning up your sausage. Mine was really lean, but you want to drain off most of the extra fat if you have any. Then you saute the veggies just for a few minutes. Make sure you cut them small so they cook faster.

Recipe for creamy and delicious Sausage Tortellini Soup

Flour is used to thicken up the soup. Make sure you cook and stir it for at least a minute before adding the broth or the soup will have a flour taste to it. You don’t want that!

Tip: I use this chicken base when I don’t have homemade broth in the freezer. It’s cheaper than canned broth, and so much better than bouillon.

Creamy sausage soup loaded with tortellini and spinach

Half and half makes this soup creamy, but not too heavy. Sometimes my kids are a little finicky about cooked spinach, but they ate it in this soup with no complaints. I think chopping the spinach definitely makes it more palatable for the kiddos.

Make this creamy Sausage Tortellini Soup to warm you up on winter evenings.
This soup is so hearty and delicious! I hope you’ll give it a try.
