If you’ve got time to cook up something yummy on your stovetop, this recipe from Yellow Bliss Road builds on the spinach tortellini soup you can make in your slow cooker by adding Italian sausage into the mix.
You’ll create the soup base using vegetable or chicken broth, crushed tomatoes and fresh chopped basil. Spinach, tortellini and ground Italian sausage are also added to create a soup that’s hearty and tasty. The recipe also recommends toasting baguette slices and melting cheese on top for an added bit of crunch.
After 20-30 minutes of simmering on the stovetop, this soup can be ready just in time for dinner:
A version from Gal On A Mission makes the tomato even more of a standout in the recipe by adding a can of tomato sauce along with a can of diced tomatoes. So, this has the flavor of classic tomato soup, but with the addition of three-cheese tortellini, too.

Lucky for you — this can be prepared all in one pot and is ready to spoon up in just 47 minutes.
Whether you let your slow cooker or your stovetop do the work, there’s no way these soup recipes won’t become weeknight staples for you and your family this winter!
