Ingredients

  • 1 lb Hot Italian Sausage
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 can Fire Roasted Chopped Tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 4 pieces of celery chopped
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 2 cups spinach leaves chopped
  • 2 zucchini chopped
  • 9 oz fresh tortellini (See Note 1)

Instructions

  • In a large Dutch oven over medium heat add the olive oil and saut√© the onions for 3 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
  • Add sausage and break up with spoon into medium size chunks. Brown for 4 minutes, stirring often. Deglaze with white wine and stir up browned bits on bottom of pan, cooking for 1 minute.
  • Add tomatoes, cauliflower, carrots, celery and chicken broth. Stir in salt and pepper and cover. Cook for 10 minutes on medium-low.
  • Uncover and add pesto, spinach, zucchini and tortellini. Stir to mix and cook uncovered for 4 minutes. (See Note 2)
  • Serve topped with shredded parmesan cheese and parsley to garnish.

Notes

  1. I pick this up in the refrigerated cheese and Dairy section of my market.
  2. This is a broth soup, if you'd like it a little thicker mix together 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch and make a slurry with cold water. Add to soup, stir and cook for 2-3 more minutes until thickened.
