Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground Italian sausagehot or mild
  • 1 small yellow oniondiced
  • 3 cloves garlicminced
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 pinch cayenneoptional
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups kale
  • 2 cups refrigerated tortellinijust under 10 oz.
  • Salt/ to taste
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Note: The mustard powder and hot sauce are so subtle in this soup but help enhance the other flavors, so although you may be hesitant to add them, I highly recommend it!
  • Remove the casings from the sausage if you purchased links. Cook and crumble the sausage and diced onions over medium-high heat until the onions are softened and the sausage is cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Drain grease. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste.
  • Add 1 tsp dried basil, ½ tsp oregano, 1 pinch of cayenne, 1 tsp hot sauce, ½ tsp mustard powder, ¼ tsp pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Add the chicken broth and use a silicone spatula to “clean” the bottom of the pot. Add the cream. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer.
  • Add the kale and tortellini and simmer for 3-5 minutes. (If your tortellini needs longer cooking time, add the tortellini first, then the kale during the last 5 minutes.)
  • Taste the soup and add salt if desired. Start with ¼ tsp and add more after that if needed.
  • Transfer to serving bowls and top with a pinch of red pepper flakes. Serve with Garlic Bread with Cheese.
