  • small frying pan
  • large stock pot


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 16 ounces Italian sausage
  • ½ yellow onion chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup chopped kale
  • ½ cup chopped spinach
  • 2 cups tortellini
  • ½ Tablespoon chopped basil
  • parmesan cheese for topping
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • In small frying pan, combine oil, onions, peppers, garlic, and sausage. Cook until sausage has completely browned.
  • While sausage is browning, cook Tortellini according to the package in separate pot.
  • In large stock pot on medium heat, combine chicken broth, tomatoes (undrained), kale, spinach, and basil. Let it heat through.
  • To soup mixture, add sausage mixture and tortellini.
  • Let soup simmer covered on low heat for at least 15 minutes to let flavors combine.
  • Top with salt and pepper and parmesan cheese and enjoy!


  • We have also thrown this in the slow cooker, without the tortellini, for a few hours on low. Add the tortellini about 10 minutes before serving to avoid it getting mushy.
