How to Make 5-Minute Tortellini Soup!

This hearty Cheese Tortellini Soup combines Italian sausage with cheese tortellini in an easy broth with tomatoes, onions, garlic, arugula, and Italian herbs and seasonings. Ready in only a few minutes, it's comfort food at its best!

You Will Need

  • 1 lb. ground Italian Sausage (mild)
  • 1/2 medium white onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • The Kosmos Q Lab Italian Seasoning
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (14.5 ounces) can FIRE roasted tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 10 ounces refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 3 cups fresh spinach or arugula
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Fresh basil (optional)
  • French loaf (optional)
  • Olive oil

The Prep

Let's get this party started! Begin by removing the sausage from its casing, if necessary - unless you got yours skinless to begin with.

In a Dutch oven or stockpot, let a drizzle of olive oil come up to temp over medium heat. Add the Italian sausage and let it sizzle and brown, then toss in the finely chopped onions and minced garlic, letting them cook together until softened.

The Cook

With the stage set, it's time to do some flavor magic. Pour in beef and chicken broth, followed by the fire-roasted tomatoes and tomato paste. Bring everything up to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the soup simmer simmer, letting the flavors meld together.

Enter the star of the show – the cheese tortellini! Add the full 10 ounces to the soup, and season generously with Kosmos Q Lab Italian Rub. Let the tortellini simmer to your desired doneness, or according to the instructions on the package. 

In this short window of time, slice the French loaf and give the slices a toast until golden brown and crispy. 

The Payoff

For the final act: when the tortellini is done cooking, bring the pot off the heat. Introduce fresh spinach (or arugula) and stir it in. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

And just like that, your 5-minute tortellini soup is ready to serve! Top your creation with a generous sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and (optionally) garnish with fresh basil. Serve with a side of sliced French loaf, and enjoy!
