Ingredients

  • 1 lb turkey sausage
  • 20 oz three cheese tortellini the fresh kind thats kept in the fridge & ready in 3 minutes!
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 8 oz bag spinach
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 8 oz low fat cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Place a large dutch oven on a burner on the stovetop. Turn on medium heat and let the dutch oven heat up.
  • Spray the dutch oven with cooking grease.
  • Add the turkey sausage to the dutch oven. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break up the turkey as it cooks. Cook for about 5 minutes or until there's no pink and it's cooked through.
  • After the meat is finished cooking, scoop the meat out of the dutch oven. Place in a bowl on the side until needed. **When scooping out the meat, leave the excess liquid in the dutch oven! Don't drain. You'll use this for the next steps**
  • Add the chopped pepper, onion, and garlic to the dutch oven. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, as desired. Use a spoon to stir frequently.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables start to get soft.
  • Add the block of cream cheese to the dutch oven. Use a spoon to crush the cream cheese and help the melting process. Stir around until creamy and melted, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour the can of tomatoes, chicken broth, and meat into the dutch oven. Cook for about 10 minutes. Make sure the mixture is hot and heated all the way through!
  • Add the tortellini noodles into the mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes, until tortellini noodles are soft and cooked through.
  • Cut the heat to low and add in the full bag of spinach. Mix completely and let cook for bout 2 minutes, until the spinach leaves start to wilt.
  • Scoop the soup into bowls. Top with parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes for some extra flavor!
  • Enjoy!
