Quick Weeknight Meal

This Instant Pot Sausage and Tortellini soup is ready to eat in less than 30 minutes.  The first step to making this soup is to saute the Italian sausage in the Instant Pot.

I like larger bits of sausage for this soup and I used the ground variety because it takes a step out of having to remove the sausage from the casings.

Once the sausage is cooked and excess grease is drained from the pot, chicken broth is added to the pot and the pot is deglazed.

Deglazing the pot is quite simple, use a spoon to scrape any bits of cooked on sausage from the liner of the pot.

All the veggies and the spices are added to the pot except for just two ingredients: the baby spinach and the cheese tortellini.

These are added at the end and are sauteed for just a few minutes before serving.

Hearty and Delicious Instant Pot Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Delicious and hearty veggies of diced tomatoes, white onion, and cloves of garlic are added into this soup.

Additionally, added to this soup are julienned carrots and chopped celery, and cannellini beans.

I use reduced-sodium chicken broth in this recipe as well to off-set the salt added into the Italian sausage and there is no added salt in this recipe.

Instant Pot Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Adding the cheese tortellini and sauteeing after the Instant Pot has done pressurizing prevents the tortellini from overcooking and blowing up.

It’s added at the very end because it only takes about 3 minutes to cook the tortellini on a regular stove-top!

The baby spinach is added at the end as well because it prevents the spinach from wilting down to nothing.
