Sausage & Cheese Tortellini Soup

This Sausage & Cheese Tortellini Soup is Matt’s all-time favorite soup I make!!

We’ve had a few close contenders over the years but this one still wins as the best! And our kids love it too which truly makes it a real winner since it contains an entire bag of spinach…

Also, I highly recommend serving Pillsbury Cornbread Swirls with your soup. These are my go to for serving alongside all of my soups. Everyone loves them and always assume they are homemade.

I found this recipe when searching Pinterest for Meal Train ideas. It was really easy to make. One problem I had was the evaporated milk had a curdling effect in the broth. I removed the tomatoes and took the immersion blender to it. Then put the tomatoes back to fix it. Not sure what went wrong. The milk wasn’t expired or anything. Any way, thanks for the recipe. I also made the brownies and Pillsbury cornbread rolls to take with it.

@Katie, I did! I added everything but milk, tortellini and spinach. Let it cool completely, Double bagged it and froze it. Put it in the fridge the day before you want to eat it and then when you reheat it on the stove you can finish the rest of the steps! I made a bunch for a friend whose house burned down and made double for our family to eat on quick days

Just wanted to thank you, read this yesterday and was going to the grocery store and got the ingredients to make it. Picky husband and twin 2-year old approved!!! Delicious! My family is from the Charlotte area, we are up in Blakeney a lot when I visit, I really want to take my mom to that spa for pedicures next time I'm home!
