How to make Tortellini Soup with Sausage?

Start by cooking sausage in a large pot. I used a 5 qt Dutch oven.
Once browned, remove sausage into a bowl and set aside.
Add onion, garlic, and carrots to the pot and cook until softened.

Add seasoning, bouillon cube, and stir in. Saute for 2 minutes.
Add water and tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add sausage and tortellini and cook for about 8 minutes OR until the tortellini is cooked.
Add spinach or kale, if desired, and heavy cream if you want to make the soup creamy.
Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Can I make it in a slow cooker?

To make this soup in the slow cooker, brown the sausage in a skillet on the stovetop. Add to slow cooker. Cook veggies in the same skillet and add to slow cooker. Add liquids and cook soup for 4 hours on LOW. Add pasta and cook for 20 more minutes OR until the pasta is done.

Can I make it in the Instant Pot?

Yes! To cook this soup in the Instant Pot, set the pot to saute setting, cook sausage and veggies. Add liquids, seasoning, and tomato sauce and stir. Add tortellini and close the lid. Set timer to 4 minutes. Once the cooking cycle is done, wait 2 minutes, then release the pressure. Just before serving, stir in the spinach and cream.

Can I freeze Tortellini Soup?

If you plan on freezing this soup, do not add the cream as the last step. Freeze the soup in freezer-safe containers for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge. Add cream just before serving.

Storing and reheating:

Any leftovers should be stored in a container with a lid, in the fridge, for up to 5 days. Reheat the soup in a pot on the stove or in the microwave.
