Creamy Sweet Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup


We recently made the MOST DELICIOUS soup with our Mangalitsa Sweet Italian Sausage, fresh tortellini, and kale. It was super quick and easy (30 minutes for a soup? Yes, please!), and all four of us loved it!


• 1lb Mangalitsa Sweet Italian sausage, ground

• 1 onion, minced

• 6 garlic cloves, minced

• 1-quart chicken stock (make your own if you can, if not, store-bought is fine)

• 1 (14 oz can) crushed tomatoes (diced work too)

• 2 tbsp tomato paste

• 1 tsp salt

• 1 bunch kale, stems removed, and pieces chopped (Substitute Spinach if desired)

• 1 (10 oz) bag cheese tortellini, fresh (not dried) 

• 1 cup heavy cream

• shaved parmesan cheese (optional)

• red pepper flakes (optional)


1. Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat.

2. Add the sausage, onions, and garlic to the pot and sauté for about 5 minutes (until the onions are soft and translucent).

3. Add the chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, and tomato paste. Stir until it is all combined. 

4. Bring to a boil, season with salt, then simmer for 15 minutes.

5. Add the kale, tortellini, and heavy cream.

6. Simmer for 5-7 minutes until the kale is wilted and the pasta is tender.

7. Top with Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes, if desired.
