Ah, finally!! Fall weather has arrived and that means soup weather has arrived too. One of the first soups I make every fall is Tortellini Soup. It’s so easy to pull together and only has 4 ingredients!
This past Saturday was forecast to be a little rainy and chilly so it seemed like the perfect time to make the first pot of the year. Alex even made an appearance to work on Halloween decorating. Tortellini soup is one of her favorites so it was just added incentive. I always know that if I need her to show up and do something, offering to feed her usually gets me the quickest results. ?
This soup is so easy to make
To start, brown your bulk pork sausage (the kind that comes in the tube) in the bottom of a large stockpot or Dutch oven.
I usually don’t add any extra spices other than a little garlic salt because I find that the seasoning from the sausage gives the soup enough flavor.
Add the chicken broth, spinach, and frozen tortellini.
Now bring it to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until pasta is done. Boom! Done! Serve with some crusty bread and enjoy a job well done. See? I told you it was easy. Your family will think you slaved over a hot stove all day.
