I love to serve dishes that have everything you need on one plate. Consider this meal a new family favorite! While most home cooks choose to make this dish during the colder months, I tend to make this one year-round. There’s just something so delicious about the combination that makes it impossible for me to wait for the winter season.

Tips and Variations:

  • My sausage seemed lean, so I didn’t bother to drain it. 
  • If your tortellini package says to cook for 5 minutes, you’ll need to revise the cooking time at the end. My package said to cook for 2 minutes. 
  • Substitute Italian sausage for chicken sausage for a different flavor profile.
  • If you are looking to cut down on the fat, feel free to omit the cream. This will adjust the consistency of the soup.
  • Top with parmesan cheese for an extra boost of flavor.
