They say never grocery shop when you are hungry! I will go one step further and say if you are not comfortable experimenting in the kitchen, never go on Pinterest when you’re hungry or ill-stocked. This Creamy Italian Sausage Soup With Cheese Tortellini happened all because I ended up on Pinterest and got inspired by 3 recipes and then fell into the Pinterest rabbit hole and couldn’t remember where I found what!
There is something about Italian Sausage and tortellini that makes my heart skip a beat. Though not as helpful when I’m in high-protein training diet mode but in this instance, I added some spinach to help with adding protein! This Italian Sausage soup meal is perfect for cheat days or those busy weekday nights! Did I mention the kids like it?
