30 Min Italian Tortellini Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 Italian turkey sausage links (4 ounces each), casings removed (I used the “hot” sausage version)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 3/4 teaspoon dried basil (or, you can substitute thyme and oregano)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash crushed red pepper flakes (optional if not using hot turkey sausage)
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional

DIRECTIONS

Crumble sausage into a Dutch oven; add onion. Cook and stir over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Add garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
Add the broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil.
Stir in tortellini; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
Add the spinach, basil, pepper and pepper flakes; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted. Serve with cheese if desired.
