There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to make a big family meal that’s tasty and filling but won’t take an entire day to prepare. That’s where our smoked sausage and tortellini soup recipe comes in. And if you think using tortellini pasta makes this recipe too fancy or complicated, think again…

Tortellini pasta is like a smaller version of ravioli, but instead of a square pillow of pasta, tortellini is shaped like a ring and stuffed with meat or cheese filling, like pork, sausage, prosciutto, or Parmesan cheese. You can make tortellini pasta dough at home, but it can be pretty time-consuming. That’s why for our smoked sausage and tortellini soup recipe, we suggest purchasing a package of cheese tortellini at the market.

This is technically a soup recipe — made with chicken broth base — by adding Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage, this soup also makes a satisfyingly filling and delicious main course.

Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage is made with quality cuts of pork, turkey, and beef and the links are perfectly seasoned with traditional spices and then smoked to perfection. Hillshire Farm® has a variety of smoked rope sausage flavors to choose from, too, and they all work perfectly in this smoked sausage and tortellini soup recipe. Try Beef Smoked Sausage, Hot Smoked Sausage, Turkey or Beef Polska Kielbasa, and many other varieties of Hillshire Farm® sausage. There’s even a Lite Smoked Sausage made with real cuts of lower-fat and lower-calorie quality meats.

    One of my favorite dishes to make! I used an entire container of chicken broth and added some water as well. Also added more seasonings

    I made this last night. It was very easy and simple to make. Everyone enjoyed it! I thought is was a little plain on the flavor side...and I even used a cajun sausage and added some garlic powder and onion powder. Personally, I was hoping for a more robust flavor. Next time I may include some additional seasonings to it. But all in all it was a big hit! My kids (17 & 13) went back for seconds (they aren't picky eaters and have a very diverse food palate). It is a harty dish and is perfectly fine by itself. I will definitely make this again!!

    I loved this soup, I put in the entire box of chicken broth. If you like it hot, eat with Snap'd Jalapeno Jack Cheez It.

    loved it! Was very hearty but if you want it to be more of a soup, definitely recommend adding more broth as it evaporates. but great as it is too!

    Great meal! Tried to make it with gluten free cheese tortellini but couldn’t find any, so I got gluten free penne indtead, and added mozerella and parmesean on top at the end. It tasted great! Will definitly cook this again.
