  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large stock pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add the chopped onions, carrots and garlic and cook stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes or until the onions become translucent.
  • Add the Italian sausage (casings removed) and cook stirring frequently, braking up any big chunks into marble-sized pieces. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink.
  • Add the tomatoes and the chicken or vegetable stock. Season with the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Stir in the spinach and tortellini and cook for about 5 - 7 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
  • Stir in the heavy cream (if using), Parmesan cheese, fresh basil and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve topped with some extra Parmesan cheese.


  • You can use pork, turkey or chicken Italian sausage.
  • You can use half and half instead of heavy cream or skip that ingredient altogether.
  • Nutrition facts are an estimate and will vary depending on the brand of ingredients used.
