Italian Tortellini Soup — Easy Weeknight Meal!
Here’s a hearty dinner idea your family will LOVE!
If you’re looking for a tasty soup recipe that’s also easy to prepare (especially for those busy weeknights!), try this yummy soup that features sausage and store-bought cheese tortellini! This makes for such a comforting meal on a chilly day, and the leftovers taste even better the next day.
Hip tips for making Italian Tortellini Soup:
- I’m using chicken sausage in this recipe, however, you can swap it to any sausage or ground sausage you prefer.
- The prepared cheese tortellini I’m using can be found in the refrigerated section at the store. I bet you could also use your favorite cheese ravioli instead if desired.
- The tortellini tends to soak up the broth, so if you have leftovers to reheat consider having some extra broth on hand to add.
