How To Make This Easy Sausage Tortellini Soup Recipe:
To make this delicious soup recipe, start with a large stock pot sitting over medium heat until.
Once the pot is hot add in the ground sausage and cook it until the sausage is no longer pink.
When the sausage is done cooking, use a colander to drain the grease and set the sausage aside for later.
Then in the same pot, add in the butter over medium heat and let it melt completely.
After the butter is melted, add in the diced onions, shredded carrots, diced celery, and cook everything until the veggies are nice and tender.
Next add the minced garlic and Italian seasoning to the vegetables and cook it all together for a minute or so.
Now, add in the flour into the vegetables and mix it together until the vegetables are coated in the flour. This will help thicken up the soup a bit.
Once that is all set, pour in the chicken broth, can of diced tomatoes, and the tomato paste and stir it all together.
When you have the tomato paste dissolved into the chicken broth, pour in the heavy cream, and add in the cheese tortellini and the chopped spinach and add the cooked sausage back to the pot.
Bring all of that to a simmer for about 6-7 minutes or until your tortellini is cooked to your liking and the spinach is wilted.
Then simply season with salt and pepper how you like it and mix it all together one last time.
Now, serve the delicious tortellini soup while it is warm and top each bowl with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and enjoy!

Can this be Made Gluten-Free?
When making this recipe we use the flour as the thickener, and generally use all-purpose flour. So, if you want to use your one for one gluten-free flour substitute that should work just fine!
If you are not sure what to use instead of all-purpose flour, Kitchn has a great list of 16 gluten-free substitutes that you can check out and choose from.
Notes for Our Tortellini Soup
If you want to try spicy Italian sausage is will be delicious in this recipe if you like a little heat!
We would suggest making this soup the day you need it. The tortellini will soak up a lot of the broth after it sits, so the leftovers won’t have much liquid.
With your leftovers, you can always add some more chicken broth and/or heavy cream if you want more liquid in it.
If you want to omit the cream this soup is still delicious without the cream. I would add in an extra cup of chicken broth to make up the difference of the liquid in the soup.
To add even more greens to this dish, you could also substitute kale for the spinach or do both!
Also, if you want to add more vegetables, I love throwing in fresh sliced mushrooms and diced bell peppers in with the onions, carrots, and celery. The more veggies the better!
