Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs is a comfort soup at its best. Perfect for cold days, but we love it all year round.

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

This meal definitely feeds mia famiglia very well and on the budget, if I might add.

It’s rich, comforting, satisfying, a pinch spicy and a whole lot tasty. So, I have a question for you, what’s not to like?

You got cheese pasta aka tortellini, spicy meatballs, and magical broth with spinach. Not only that you will like the taste but the fact that it is super easy to prepare.

I do not think you will need more than 30 minutes even if you are going slower to make it.

Also, you can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days without losing the taste.

However, in that case, I would add a splash of water if needed because it might get thicker.

I have made this one so many times and my family really likes it just the way it is.

Sometimes I would just saute Italian sausage ground meat or if I am feeling extra good I roll meatballs. I explained that part in the recipe below.

Now, if you do not eat meat you could replace it with mushrooms for extra umami. Perhaps a few different kinds just to have options.

In my recipes, there is always an alternative. Not all of us like or eat everything so I understand it very well.

Mushrooms will always be an excellent meat replacement as well as beans so just experiment.

Delicious and easy recipe for Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage,
  • 1/2 cup diced onion about 1/2 medium-sized onion
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 28 ounces canned tomatoes (crushed or use tomato sauce)
  • 32 ounces chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 pack frozen spinach (I use cream of spinach sometimes) or 2 cups of fresh
  • 9 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. I like making smaller meatballs from Italian sausage meat, but you do not have to at all. Also, you can get one in a casing like links, just peel it off. Whatever is easier for you.
  2. Brown all the meatballs (or Italian sausage meat) then take them out on the pot. you can brown them in batches or use wide enough pot to fit all.
  3. In the same pot, add onion, celery, garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes at medium-high temperature.
  4. Add tomato (crushed or sauce), chicken broth and season it to taste. Add herbs and spinach.
  5. Cook until boils then add Italian sausage meatballs back in the soup.
  6. Add frozen tortellini and cook until the cheese tortellini are cooked. They will start to float.
  7. Add heavy cream, but it's not necessary. It tastes just as good without it. Taste and see if you need more seasoning.
