Easy Chicken Sausage Tortellini Pasta Soup Recipe Will Be On Repeat

I've made this tortellini sausage soup recipe twice this week. Everyone loved this quick and easy pasta soup recipe! This savory soup recipe is wonderful because you can change the type of the sausage, tortellini and vegetables to make the soup different every time you cook it.

You don't need too many ingredients to make this hearty tortellini soup recipe. Here is your shopping list: olive oil, chicken sausage, a fennel bulb, garlic, chicken broth, fresh or frozen tortellini, chopped vegetables and grated Parmesan cheese for serving.

Serve this warming, comforting soup for dinner or for lunch. Add some warm bread on the side and you are in business!

Recipe Notes

  • You can use precooked sausage, but if using raw sausage, make sure to cook it through in the first step.
  • The fennel fronds are the leafy tops of fennel.
  • Store the soup in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Add sausage to a large soup pot or Dutch oven on medium-high. Cook for about 7 to 9 minutes, or until sausage is cooked through and brown.
  2. Add chopped fennel bulb (not fronds), garlic and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté for another 6 to 7 minutes, or until the fennel is soft, scraping the bottom of the pan a few times along the way.
  3. Add the chicken broth and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Taste the broth and add more salt and pepper if needed.
  4. Add the tortellini and vegetables and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until tortellini is cooked. If using frozen tortellini add that first and then add the vegetables when there are 3 minutes remaining of the cook time.
  5. Serve with a sprinkle of the fennel fronds and a touch of Parmesan.
