Servings: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage links
  • 1 sweet medium onion , diced fine
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon cracked red pepper flakes or to taste
  • 1 (9 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Heat oil over medium-high in a Dutch oven. Add sausages and cook, rolling occasionally, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pot.
  2. Add onion to the pot and cook over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes, scraping up any browned bits. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Stir in broth and seasonings, and bring to a boil.
  3. Slice sausage into 1/2-inch thick pieces and add back to the pot. Stir in the tortellini and simmer gently until pasta is tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook until just wilted. Season with a little salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Ladle into bowls and serve.
