Pesto Tortellini & Kale Soup

There are very few dishes that I constantly remake.  This hearty soup with tortellini, sausage, beans and kale, is the perfect meal to come home to after a long day.  Nothing beats simple and delicious comfort foods.

 

RECIPE OVERVIEW


In a large pot head up olive oil.  Brown the sausage. Add in garlic cooking until fragrant. Transfer sausage into a bowl, and set aside.

Add in broth & bring to a boil. Be sure to scrape off any brown bits from the bottom.  Before adding your pasta, taste the both.  If it’s too bland, add up to 2 chicken bouillon (2 TBSP) to flavor. Add in tortellini and cook for 2 minutes less recommended time on the package, leaving the lid cracked open to let the steam come out.

Once timer goes off add in the beans.

Then the kale & sausage. Remove from heat & let sit covered for 2 minutes.


Serve into bowls, garnishing with Parmesan cheese.

 

Buon Appetito!

  1. I LOVE kale sausage soup! I’ve made a similar version with turkey sausage and carrots and included rice as my starch ingredients but this recipes brings a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ with the tortellini…will definitely give this a try!
