    This spicy sausage and vegetable tortellini soup is exactly what you need when cold weather hits! Chock-full of veggies and cheesy tortellini; this soup will warm you right up!

    Servings: 6
    Ingredients
    • 3/4 pound fresh spicy pork sausage, casing removed
    • 1 1/2 cups finely sliced leeks
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 1/2 cups diced carrots
    • 1 cup diced celery
    • 1: 15-ounce can Hunt's diced tomatoes
    • 1 pouch (2 tablespoons) Hunt's Recipe Ready Tomato Paste
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 5 cups vegetable stock
    • 5 cups loosely packed tuscan kale leaves
    • 2 cups cheese tortellini
    Instructions
    1. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a large 6-quart pot or heavy-bottomed pot like a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once oil has heated, add sausage and cook through, breaking into tiny pieces.

    2. Add leeks and garlic and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes.

    3. Add carrots and celery and toss. Add the diced tomatoes, paste, and bay leaf. Toss to incorporate.

    4. Add the vegetable stock and bring soup to a boil. Then reduce heat and let simmer, covered, until vegetables are softened, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    5. Remove from heat and stir in kale leaves until wilted. Add the tortellini and cook from residual heat of the soup until softened and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

    6. Divide into bowls and serve. Leftovers can be put in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

    Was wondering if you have a calorie count for the soup Thanks

    • Julie says:

      Unfortunately, no. There are many reasons as to why I don’t post nutritional information on my recipes, one of which is that I simply do not have the time to do this. Also, I’m not a registered dietician or nutritionist so for me to give any sort of nutritional information would be incorrect and inaccurate. There are also many differing factors when it comes to nutritional information and since I do not have the knowledge in this, I do not feel comfortable posting this sort of information. If you must have this information, there are many calculators out there (free and paid) that can help you with calculations. A simple Google search would pull up some of these calculators, but again, I’m not endorsing them as I do not know how accurate they may be.

      Hi, sorry – I had it in there initially but I guess the recipe plugin I use doesn’t allow me to use dashes. It’s about 6 servings.
