Mmmm…Tuscan Tortellini Soup

I promised to share a couple easy soup recipes, and here is the first one. It’s Tuscan Tortellini Soup, and it makes for a really satisfying dinner on these cold Michigan nights. 

Tuscan Tortellini Soup

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print


  • 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (I always use sweet onions)
  • 1 lb. cooked chicken sausage links, sliced into 1/2 inch-thick rounds (I used cooked Italian chicken sausage, but you can use turkey sausage, too. Either way, make sure it is cooked before you slice it.)
  • 3 gloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (28 oz.) can of crushed tomatoes
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (I put half as much; you can add or subtract to taste.)
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 2 (9 oz.) packages refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 (15 oz.) can or jar white beans, drained (can use Great Northern, too)
  • 5 oz. package of baby spinach
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving
Tuscan Tortellini Soup


  1. In a large soup pot, over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook, stirring until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add chicken sausage and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Stir in crushed tomatoes, broth, and red pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Bring to a boil and then add tortellini; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tortellini is cooked. Check package instructions…likely 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Stir in white beans and spinach and cook until spinach has wilted; about 2 minutes.
  7. Serve topped with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

    How did you know I’ve been craving soup? Nothing complicated, just tasty. Can’t wait to try this, minus the pepper and cheese.

    Thanks, Kathy.
