  • 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.
  • Add leeks and garlic and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes.
  • Add carrots and celery and toss. Add the diced tomatoes, paste, and bay leaf. Toss to incorporate.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Divide into bowls and serve. Leftovers can be put in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

    1. 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.

  1. These pouches are a game changer!! Seriously, I hate wasting tomato paste. So genius as well as this soup. I am so over old man winter!
