Tortellini Sausage Soup


Tortellini Sausage Soup …the perfect soup for cold days and chilly evening! This is my husband’s favorite, and you’ll soon find out why – easy to make, and so incredibly delicious!

Today I’m sharing one of my husbands favorite soups: Tortellini sausage soup. This recipe comes from my Aunt Jane’s ‘Favorites’ cook book and it’s perfect on a cold winter day! I first had this soup a few years back at our annual gingerbread contest and have remembered it ever since. I made a few adjustments to the recipe and love how it turned out!

PS- Is anyone else freezing?! I’m going into cold shock with this Ohio weather. Apparently this isn’t even “cold” yet. I think I will make soup every night for dinner next six months… then top it off with some hot apple cider. ;) Get ready for lots of soup recipes. ;)

Favorite tortellini sausage soup recipe!

    Thanks for the soup recipes. Im in the mood for a warm bowl,too! I’m in Springfield Ohio and we got hit by a crazy storm last night. How about you?

    • Jamielyn posted on November 1, 2013 at 5:45 pm (#

      I have definitely been in the mood for warm soup too! It was pretty rainy last night, the kids were bummed that they couldn’t go trick or treating outside!

    This looks so hearty, Jamielyn! This would be perfect for a cold fall night! I’m trying to get my kids to try new soups and tortellini soup might be something they’d actually like! I’m hopping over from Link Party Palooza & so glad I did!

    I’ve got this soup simmering on the stove right now and it looks very red and tomato-y…not much like the picture. The ingredients say to add a can of crushed tomatoes…but in the picture it looks like you used diced tomatoes. Did you use crushed or diced? If you could let me know, I’d appreciate it! Thanks. :)

      Hi Christy! You can used crushed or diced tomatoes, it should taste the same! I just use whichever I have on hand. :)

    I make a similar soup, but mine has spinach instead of carrots and celery.

    Looks so good.

    I’ve made this recipe before with more carrots (because I love carrots in soup) and added spinach. The sausage/beef broth/crushed tomato is sooo good. Thanks for one of my favorite soups! I live in Charleston, SC where we rarely have soup weather, this is definitely worth heating up the kitchen. 

    • Jamielyn posted on October 17, 2017 at 5:05 pm (#

      I’ve made a similar one to that in my crock pot but also added cream cheese. Such a good combo! :)
