Sausage, Tortellini & Spinach Soup.

It was another soup & bread day in my kitchen. Yum! This hearty soup is a twist on chicken noodle: it uses turkey sausage and cheese tortellini, and adds mushrooms & spinach. With both the sausage and the tortellini, it makes a filling meal. The crumbled prosciutto on top adds great flavor and texture. 

  • 1 package of turkey Italian sausage or bratwurst, cut into 1 inch pieces or smaller
  • 64 ounces chicken broth
  • 1 package fresh cheese tortellini
  • 1 box cleaned, sliced mushrooms
  • 6 large handfuls fresh spinach
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 2 slices prosciutto, cooked until crisp and crumbled
In stock pot or large soup pot, cook turkey sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Add mushrooms and parsley.  Cook for two minutes.  Add tortellini and cook for 5 minutes or according to package directions.  Stir in spinach and cook for 1 more minute. Ladle into bowls and serve with a sprinkling of prosciutto crumbles on top.
