Hey, y’all! It finally feels like fall here in Kentucky — and when falls rolls through the Commonwealth, that means one thing and one thing only: it’s soup season! While there are many soups that I hope to share with you this season, I wanted to start off with my absolute favorite: my creamy sausage tortellini soup. It’s incredibly easy to make, has a multitude of flavors, and always proves to be a crowd favorite. You’ll make this each month from here on out, believe me!

My creamy sausage tortellini soup is truly simple to make, yet packs serious flavor. Check out the frequently asked questions below for guidance!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use hot or mild Italian sausage?

I personally prefer hot Italian sausage, as I think it has more flavor. However, choose the sausage of your liking. If you can only find mild in store, you can add some red pepper flakes and hot sauce to spice it up!

How long does this soup last in the refrigerator?

This soup will be good in the refrigerator for 2-4 days.

Can I freeze it?

Yes, absolutely! This is a great soup for the freezer.

Stovetop or crockpot?

I prefer to make this soup on the stovetop in a large stock pot; that said, if you prefer to use a crockpot for your soups, that is absolutely an option. Adjust accordingly.

I don’t like sausage — can I make a substitution?

Yes! While I think sausage is best in this recipe, chicken would also be delicious. For easiest preparation, you could purchase an already-roasted rotisserie chicken from the store.
