Creamy Tuscan Sausage Tortellini Soup

Creamy Tuscan Sausage Tortellini Soup is a hearty soup that is stuffed full of cheese tortellini, Italian sausage in a cream-based broth.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Johnsonville. The opinions and text are all mine.

A DELICIOUSLY HEARTY SOUP

Y’all, I tested this recipe for Creamy Tuscan Sausage Tortellini Soup several times to make sure I had the seasonings just right. I had originally thought this recipe would just be with the cheese tortellini but I wanted to make it a bit more heartier and filling. So I added Italian sausage to it and it took it over the top! It’s a guaranteed winner and it’s all thanks to perfectly cooked sausages made in my Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill. You may have seen me use this indoor electric grill for my Sausage Baked Beans as well as Italian Sausage and Peppers.

PERFECT GIFT FOR DAD

Do you have that one person who is always so hard to buy for? Year after year you struggle with what to get them? Then I have the perfect suggestion! The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill is the perfect holiday gift for the sausage lover in your life. Or that person who is incredibly hard to shop for! We all know someone like that, right?

The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Indoor Electric Grill works anywhere there is an electrical outlet and is easy to transport. The grill has an enclosed design that seals completely when locked so that the sausages are cooked and browned evenly, the juices and flavor don’t escape, and no drippings splatter outside the grill.

HOW TO COOK SAUSAGES PERFECTLY

Because of the internal thermometer, it knows exactly when the sausages are cooked. And any excess grease drips right down into the drip pan below. The plates pop right off for easy clean up and can be put right into the dishwasher to be cleaned. Boom!

CREAMY TUSCAN SOUP

We enjoy eating bratwurst (brats) often so this little baby gets a lot of use in my house. It will be a huge hit for anyone in your life! This time I used it to make this delicious soup. I know it will cook the sausages perfect every time but it also frees me up so I can get started on the soup while the sausages cook. I don’t have to worry about flipping them or accidentally burning the outside while the inside is still raw.

    Would have to keep for myself since I would be doing the cooking, but bet I could teach hubby once he sees how easy it is.
