This creamy and easy tortellini soup has spinach, tomatoes, and carrots, and makes for a great weeknight dinner. It’s fast, delicious, and can be packed as a leftover lunch and served with garlic bread and a salad.



  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 10 oz spinach
  • 9 oz three cheese tortellini
  • Optional: parmesan cheese on top 


  1. Heat a large pot on medium heat.
  2. Brown the Italian sausage. While it’s cooking, chop the onion and carrots.
  3. Remove the Italian sausage and set aside.
  4. Cook the chopped veggies for 4-5 minutes until the onions are transluscent. Add the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  5. Sprinkle flour on top of the veggies and stir. Allow to cook for about 3 minutes.
  6. Add chicken broth and canned tomatoes, and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Add frozen tortellini to the pot and allow to cook for 8 minutes (or however long the package says).
  8. Add spinach and heavy cream and allow to simmer for another 5 minutes or so.
  9. Serve with a little parmesan cheese on top, or even a splash of white wine vinegar!


  • You can add 2 tbsp of tomato paste if you want a stronger tomato flavor.
  • Add a little bit of red pepper flakes for a spicy kick
  • You can use any tortellini you like! I bet mushroom tortellini would be delicious with this.
  • Add any veggies that you need to use up. It will come out delicious!
