Sausage and Kale Tortellini Recipe

I am a big fan of comfort food in the winter. Especially the kind that is made in one pot, combines a little comfort with some healthy vegetables and doesn’t take hours to prep. This sausage tortellini soup checks all the boxes! It even has kale in it. But you can’t taste it so you don’t even know you are eating healthy.

Soup is not usually a big request in this house because it’s not all that filling and I’ve got four over-six-foot-tall men to feed. Sausage Tortellini Soup is the exception!

This soup is the perfect main course. I love to serve it with a hearty fall salad or a super easy Ceasar salad! Top it with some fresh parmesan and serve with some hot fresh sourdough bread on the side.

Looking for more comfort food? This Yogurt Chicken Parmesan served with a side of buttered noodles or Garlic Roasted Potato Wedges is the perfect food to snuggle up to!

Notes & Tips

  • To make this recipe Gluten Free, don’t add the tortellini. Instead add a gluten free pasta or rice. If adding rice, cook the rice first and then add the desired amount to each bowl before you add the soup.
  • While you can use store bought chicken broth, this soup really shines when you use homemade broth. If you would like my homemade chicken bone broth recipe, you can grab it here.
  • This soup freezes well. Store in individual sizes for those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking.
