It’s finally starting to get warm around here. That means soup season is coming to an end, but I still have time to share at least one more soup recipe. At least I don’t think you guys will mind too much, right?
I love soup because it’s easy to make a lot, it’s inexpensive, it’s easy, and it’s delicious. I love cheap, easy, and delicious. This soup takes less than a half hour from start to finish, has 6 ingredients (not including salt and pepper…), and is so delicious that the hubster asks for it all the time! What’s not to love about that, right?
Sausage and Tortellini Soup
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Pound Italian Sausage, Casings Removed
1 12 or 16 Ounce Bag of Cheese Tortellini
6 Cups Chicken Stock
2 Cups Milk, Cream, or Half and Half
2 Cups Chopped Spinach, Kale, or Other Leafy Green
Salt and Pepper, To Taste
Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the sausage, and cook until no longer pink.
Add the stock. Once it boils, add the tortellini and boil until they float.
Add the milk and the spinach and boil for a few more minutes. Spinach takes about a minute, which is less time than kale (5 minutes), so just cook until whatever greens you’re using are tender enough for you.
Season with Salt and Pepper according to taste and enjoy!
