Ingredients
  • 1 ½ lbs. Italian sausage I love using Spicy Chicken Sausage
  • ½ purple onion chopped
  • ½ yellow onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 28 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4-6 cups kale roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of half and half or whole milk
  • 1 box cheese tortellini I use the tortellini in the refrigerated section
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoning
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot, I like to use my cast iron cooking pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and brown sausage. Once completely cooked, drain and set aside. 

  2. Using the same pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add onions and garlic and cook until tender. Once onions and garlic are caramelized, add crushed tomatoes, chicken stock, browned ground sausage & kale.

  3. Bring to a boil, while stirring frequently, add Italian seasoning and salt & pepper to taste.

  4. Continue to boil 5-10 minutes to allow flavors to merge.
  5. If you use dry tortellini, add to soup and cook until al dente, about 15-20 minutes.

    If you use refrigerated tortellini add to soup and reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.

  6. Add half and half and parmesan cheese.
  7. Simmer for a few more minutes.
  8. Remove from heat & serve.
