It was late summer, several years ago, when I first made creamy sausage tortellini soup, using freshly made tomato salsa and we both fell in love with the soup instantly.

 

Tomato salsa (our recipe) is tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce made from scratch that we use for soup recipes and as condiment to most of tomato and basil-based dishes. This is the reason of large quantities I make every year to have until fresh heirloom tomatoes ripe next season.

Once you scroll down to see detailed but so simple tortellini soup, you shall notice no special herbs and spices mentioned. It is because most of them are already canned within tomato sauce. This batch is loaded with parsley leaves, basil, and thyme.

Also, Italian sausage is bursting with spices and flavours and while cooking they are released for the best results! You can make this creamy sausage tortellini soup with mild Italian sausage as well. That way, you’ll enjoy lighter version of this simple dinner.

Although the two share a similar shape, tortelloni are larger than delicate little tortellini.
