This recipe was at the request of Luis.  I’m not sure where or when he had Tortellini Soup in the past….but he requested that I make it for him.  I had no idea what he was looking for and was a bit skeptical when he said it has spinach in it.  I hate spinach.  Growing up, my parents would “make” canned spinach as a side dish and I just could not eat it.  Ever since then, I have been a “no spinach please” type of girl.  But, a happy husband makes for a happy life…so, I gave it another try.  I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe because I actually liked the spinach in it! The creamy goodness of this recipe reminded me of The Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi and Zuppa Toscana all in one. The creaminess of the Chicken Gnocchi mixed with the sausage from the Zuppa Toscana paired well in this recipe. Kaleigh was also skeptical because of “the green stuff” in the soup but she absolutely loved it because of the creamy, cheesy tortellini.  I ate three bowls when I made it…couldn’t get enough.

Tips for this recipe:

  1. Mix the cornstarch and water together in a mason jar….shake! No more lumps.  Seriously, get a mason jar and your life will be easier.  I use to use a cup and a fork to mix together and always had lumps. After switching to a mason jar…no more lumps!!
  2. If you love spinach, use fresh spinach. The fresh spinach will create a fresher taste. I used frozen due to my distaste towards spinach.
  3. Add more tortellini if you have kids.  Kaleigh wanted to eat all of the tortellini in one bowl to begin with.  When I make this recipe again, I’ll double up on the tortellini so she can have more “tortellini with the sauce.”
  4. Buy bulk sausage instead of cased sausage.

  1. Thanks so much for the recipe. The soup was so delicious and very tasty. I will be making this more often. And was so easy in the instant Pot. I only added a little more of the seasoning for my taste. 😀
