Tortellini Soup with Sausage

A savory and creamy tortellini soup filled with ground sausage, cream cheese, spinach, tomatoes and chicken broth. Super easy to make and can be on your dinner table in 40 minutes. 

  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


  • 1 lb pork sausage
  • 1 (17 oz) bag cheese tortellini
  • 1 (6-oz) bag baby spinach
  • 67 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (14-oz) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 block cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a medium skillet, add the sausage and brown,until cooked through completely. Remove the sausage and transfer to a plate with a paper towel so that the grease can drain. 
  • In a large Dutch Oven or pot, add the cooked sausage, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, cream cheese and sausage.
  • Allow these ingredients to cook together until it becomes creamy and the cream cheese is completely melted. 
  • Add the bags of cheese tortellini along with salt and pepper to taste. Let this simmer at a low heat until pasta is done. You want the pasta to be firm and grow in size. Around 8-10 minutes.
  • Finally,  add the bag of spinach and let cook down, around 3-4 additional minutes.


  • Don’t boil or cook at a higher heat. This will break down the pasta making the noodles mushy.
  • This recipe is a great crock pot option also.  You will have to brown your sausage before adding to the crock pot in addition to leaving out the tortellini until the last 10-12 minutes of cooking. 
  • For the crock-pot cook on low for 6-7 hours
  • This recipe will last 1 week stored in a sealed container or jar. You can also freeze in a freezer proof container for up to 3 months.
  • If you like more veggies in your soup, feel free to add another half bag of spinach.
