This Italian sausage and tortellini soup recipe is creamy, comforting, and very easy to make with very little prep time.
Add the sausage pieces to a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes, or until the sausage is browned all over.
Take the sausage out of the pot and set it aside on a plate. Drain most of the fat from the pot (leave some in to cook the onion).
Cook the onion for 4 minutes or so, then add the flour to the pot and cook for a minute, stirring constantly.
Add the chicken broth slowly and stir until the flour has completely dissolved.
Add the canned tomatoes, garlic, and Italian seasoning to the pot. Also add the sausage back in. Increase the heat to high and bring the soup to a gentle boil.
Once it's boiling, add the tortellini and reduce the heat so it's gently simmering. Cook for 5 minutes.
Stir in the cream and cook for another 5 minutes.
Season with salt & pepper to taste and serve immediately.
