Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup: easy to make comfort food!

This year I’ve decided to be more diligent in menu planning. It’s ironic actually that I spend so much of my day thinking about food, creating recipes, and grocery shopping…yet several times a week I draw a blank at dinner time.

Creating a weekly menu helps me stay on track. I love soups too, especially this time of year! So easy to whip up in usually under 30 minutes! Today’s recipe is packed with flavor. From the spicy sausage to the cheesy tortellini it won’t dissapoint! We served ours with a garden salad and some crusty french bread, it was a perfect meal!!

Feel free to adjust the heat by using a sweet Italian sausage instead of spicy Italian sausage. Either way it’s going to be delish.

I use to be really good at getting a menu planned for the week, but I slacked off over the holidays. I need to get back on track. My goal is one trip the grocery store a week :)

We love sausage and tortellini soup at our house and your soup looks scrumptious, Aimee! Nope. Never menu planned in my life. We plan perhaps 2 to 3 days in advance at our house and buy fresh ingredients. Don’t really mind all the shopping. Thanks for sharing, girl. Pinned!

I need to be better about menu planning myself — life would be so much easier if I knew what I was making for dinner every night! As for the soup, if there’s sausage and tortellini in something, I’m definitely in. :)

I started menu planning right before the holidays and it seriously has taken the stress out of “what’s for dinner?” I need to add this to my list!

I like tortellini very much and I often buy or cook them by myself but I would never have thought that can be added into the soup! I think that it is an interesting idea and the soup will be thick and nourishing.

Made this for dinner last night. So good!! I made your barbacoa last weekend, tacos and lime rice, and I’m thinking I like your savory dishes more than the sweets. Loved both!!

Hey Shiloh, I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe. We’re having the barbacoa tomorrow!! My hubby loves the savory more than sweets too :)
