What can you serve with this Creamy Sausage Tortellini Soup?
- We had some Focaccia Bread, this one looks amazing if your up for trying homemade from Lil Vienna.
- Grilled cheese would also go good with this because this a Creamy Tomato Sausage Tortellini Soup.
- Store bought Garlic bread or this Panzanella Salad with Everything Garlic Bread would also be delish.
- I like sweet mild Italian sausage, but there’s also spicy if you prefer. If you’d like a little more kick you can always add a pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper.
- If you can’t find Italian sausage and use another kind, it will not be seasoned the same and could possible be super greasy, or way too salty. Definitely take that into consideration. A good Italian sausage is your best bet here.
- If you like spinach more than kale feel free to use that instead.
- I’m using refrigerated cheese tortellini, frozen would be fine to use as well. If you have dry tortellini you may need a little extra chicken broth as those tend to absorb more liquid.
- If by chance you have any leftover tortellini soup, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. Reheat on the stovetop over low heat. Keep in mind that the tortellini may continue to absorb liquid and become a little mushy when you do reheat, like any pasta would.
- Deglazing with wine (or you can use broth), just scrapes up all the little bits and includes them to add more flavor to your Creamy Sausage Tortellini Soup.
- I’m using a Lodge 6qt Dutch Oven in this recipe. It’s an enameled cast iron which has superior heat retention and makes it easy to brown your sausage and make this a one pot clean up meal. If you don’t have a Dutch oven, you can use a skillet to brown the sausage and a stock pot for making your soup.
