Give the dishwasher a break tonight: all you need to put this recipe together is a pot and a couple of utensils for stirring and chopping. But just because it involves minimal effort doesn’t mean that it has minimal flavor. Loaded with cheesy tortelloni, slices of sweet sausage, tender spinach leaves, and a tomato-y broth, the soup brims and bubbles with plenty of filling, Italian-inspired flavors.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
Sweet Italian Pork Sausage
Chicken Stock Concentrate
Cheese Tortelloni(ContainsWheat, Eggs, Milk)
Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and dice half the onion (save the rest for another use). Pick basil leaves from stems; discard stems. Remove casings from 2 links sausage (use the other link as you like).
Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage, breaking up meat into pieces. Cook, tossing, until browned, 4-5 minutes. Add onion, garlic powder, and oregano to pot. Cook, tossing, until just softened, 2-3 minutes.
Add tomatoes, stock concentrate, and 2½ cups water to pot. Stir, scraping up any browned bits on bottom. Bring to a boil, then season with salt and pepper.
Once soup is boiling and seasoned, reduce heat to medium and gently stir in tortelloni. Let cook until tender, about 8 minutes.
Stir spinach and half the basil into pot and let wilt. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide soup between bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan, remaining basil leaves, and chili flakes (to taste).
