Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 medium yellow (or white) onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 16-20 oz fresh cheese tortellini
  • 1/4 cup prepared basil pesto
  • garnishes: sliced basil, shredded parmesan

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat.
  • Add sausage, breaking it up with the edge of your spoon, and saute until browned and cooked through, 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium low. Add onion and garlic along with a sprinkle of kosher salt and continue sauteing until the onion is soft and lightly browned, 5 minutes more.
  • Pour in wine. Increase heat to bring to a boil and stir to deglaze. Boil 1-2 minutes or until reduced by half.
  • Add marinara, stock, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Bring back to a boil, then reduce heat so that everything is at a low simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add tortellini. Cook until tender (this is 4-5 minutes with my package - check your own for timing).
  • Take the soup off the heat and stir in pesto. Serve with fresh basil and shredded parmesan.

Notes

  • Italian Sausage: You can use hot or a mix of hot and sweet if you prefer more spice in the recipe. Also, I use bulk sausage meat which makes it easy break up when sauteing with no need to worry about casings.
  • Frozen Tortellini: You can use frozen instead of fresh. Note that the cooking time may be a few minutes more.
  • Marinara: Use your favorite jarred sauce or make homemade. Either is great.
