Creamy Tortellini Soup Recipe

I have one thing to say.  Rain, rain go away and don't come back for a while!  LOL  We've had so much rain in my area that flooding has become and real issue.  I'm so tired of it, BUT if its going to rain, I can't think of a better thing to make than a good soup, and this Creamy Tortellini Soup Recipe may be my best one yet!  


Warm, hearty, flavorful, this soup is sure to fill your soul and your tummy with nothing, but good feels.  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's get started!



Creamy Tortellini Soup Recipe:
*Prep Time: 10 min *Cook Time: 30 min *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings: 4-6 

Ingredients:


  • 1 lb of Italian Style Chicken Sausage, diced
  • 1 lb of Cheese Tortellini
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 2 15 oz cans of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can of Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4-6 cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 6 c Chicken Broth
  • 2 c Kale, finely chopped
  • 1 c Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 c Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 


To begin place a large pot over medium/high heat, add a little oil, and allow the pot to get hot.
I recommend a Dutch Oven for this, but any nice soup pot will work great.


While your pot is getting hot, you can dice your chicken sausage.
Usually I would just slice it into discs or half moons, but since the tortellini are larger I thought this would make it much more palatable.


Place the chicken sausage and onion into the hot pot and allow it to sauté for 2-3 minutes.
The chicken sausage will brown and the onions will become soft and translucent.


Once the onions have softened, add the garlic.
Cook just long enough for you to be able to smell it coming up from the pan.


Add the dried Italian Seasoning and let it cook for about a minute.


Now its time to start building your soup!
Add the diced tomatoes to the pot.


Drain and rinse your beans.


Add those to the pot as well.


I'm going to keep it real with you here.

Your girl is on a budget and the cans and boxes just weren't in it this week.   lol

So for the chicken broth I'm going to use chicken bouillon.  You know what, that's totally fine.  Don't let anyone tell you any different.


Add 6 cups of water.
(If you are using pre-made chicken broth you will just add it and omit the bullion cubes.)


After tasting I felt it needed just a little salt, so I added it here.


I also added a little pepper as well.


Now bring your soup to a boil, lower to a simmer,  cover, and cook for 30 minutes.


While your soup is cooking, you can take this time to finely chop the kale.
Again, this small step will just make your soup more palatable.


When there is 10 minutes of cook time left,  you're going to add the parmesan cheese.
I just used the cheap stuff in the plastic container.


Then you will add the heavy cream.
Stir for a minute or two to allow the cheese to melt.


Now add the chopped kale and tortellini.
Cook for 10 more minutes.


And there you have it.  A STUNNING Creamy Tortellini Soup!

Just look at that spoon full of yummy goodness!!


I pride myself on making good soups, and can I just say that this may be the BEST soup I have ever made!  It's absolutely delicious!  So many wonderful flavors are running through this that your tongue will be having a field day with each and every bite!  I know you and your family are going to love it so get in the kitchen and make it TONIGHT!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
