How To Make Italian Sausage, Kale and Tortellini Soup
This cheesy tortellini soup is a warm respite after a cold day. The kale imparts some much needed nutrition while the sausage adds depth of flavor.
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage into pot and brown, stirring and breaking up sausage occasionally, until cooked through.
Drain sausage onto a plate lined with several layers of paper towels while reserving 1 tablespoon rendered fat in pot.
Add onions and carrots and saute for 3 minutes then add garlic and saute for 1 minute longer.
Stir in beef broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to a light boil, return sausage to pot, cover pot and reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes until carrots are nearly tender.
Stir in tortellini and kale then cover and cook for 7 to 9 minutes longer. Serve warm with parmesan cheese if desired.
