Prep
Cook
Serves 5people
Ingredients
1
lb Italian sausage
1
small yellow onion, diced
1
small shallot, diced
2
large carrots, peeled and diced
4
garlic cloves, minced
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
5
cups chicken broth
14
oz refrigerated cheese tortellini*
1
tsp kosher sea salt
1/2
tsp ground black pepper
1/2
tsp Italian seasoning
6
oz chopped fresh spinach
2
cups half & half (or heavy cream)
Directions
1.
In a large stockpot set over medium-high, cook the sausage until browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked sausage to a paper towel lined plate; set aside.
2.
Add onion, shallot and carrot, sauté for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Add the garlic and sauté for an additional 2 minutes, or until fragrant, stirring occasionally to prevent it from burning.
3.
Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually add in the chicken broth, whisk to combine. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 6 minutes.
4.
Pat as much grease as possible off of the sausage, then add it along with the tortellini, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, spinach, and half & half. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until the tortellini is fully cooked.
5.
Serve immediately with freshly grated parmesan, if desired.
6.
Notes
7.
I used regular Italian sausage, NOT hot Italian sausage. You can also use plain pork sausage and season with an additional 1 tsp. Italian seasoning.
8.
You can use whatever stuffed tortellini you prefer.
