My friend Kelly made this soup for our May Faire a few weeks back, she made 18 quarts of it, I didn’t even get a bowl. It was that good. Tortellini nestled in with sausage surrounded by tons of good for you veggies makes even the pickiest of eaters happy to have a bowl. It was so popular people came back and bought second bowls, yet somehow I still didn’t get a bowl.

Luckily Kelly likes me and she gave me the recipe. Shhh don’t tell her but I’m going to give it to you. I’m passing it on because if you want to introduce your kids to kale, this is the perfect recipe. It’s there, but the soup is so good they won’t really notice until they’ve eaten it all and ask for more.

Instructions
  1. heat the oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat
  2. add the onion and saute for a few minutes
  3. meanwhile decide if you want the sausage in slices or out of the casing, prepare accordingly
  4. add the garlic to the onion and cook for about 30 seconds
  5. then add the sausage and continue cooking for about 5 minutes
  6. while the sausage it cooking prepare the tortellini almost according to package directions, remove from cooking water before completely finished cooking, set aside the tortellini
  7. save the cooking water from the tortellini in case the soup needs a bit more broth, trust me on this one it tastes wonderful
  8. add the broth to the sausage and quickly bring to a boil
  9. add the kale, tortellini and the vegetables to the soup, then reduce heat, simmer for 15 minutes until heated through
  10. add more pasta water as needed if the tortellini suck up too much broth

Thank you Kelly for giving me another kale recipe to add to my arsenal. I’m always looking for ways to squeeze in more veggies.
