Tortellini Sausage Soup with Veggies

Tortellini Sausage Soup with Veggies

Nice with a glass of wine, a salad, and some crusty bread. Serves 6-8

  • Olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper (I like red)
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
  • 1-3 andouille or Italian sausage, sliced into disks, (optional)
  • 1 bunch kale or spinach. If using kale, separate stems and chop, chop kale leaves into bite-size pieces
  • 1 14.5 0z can diced tomatoes
  • 1 9 ounce package refrigerated tortellini
  • 6-8 cups of chicken or vegetable broth (I like the Better Than Bouillon brand, available most everywhere)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parmesan cheese for topping.

Cover bottom of soup pot with a light layer of olive oil. Going vegetarian? Skip this step. Put sausage in and brown on both sides. Set aside.

In the same pot add onions, kale stems if using, and bell peppers, adding oil if necessary, sauté until tender, add garlic and seasonings and sauté for a minute or two more. Add tomatoes, broth, greens, and tortellini and simmer until tortellini is done and kale is wilted.

Season with salt and pepper if necessary. Add sausage, pour into bowls, top with parmesan, and enjoy!
