CREAMY TORTELLINI AND SAUSAGE SOUP

INGREDIENTS:

1.25 pounds ground Italian sausage
1 small white onion, peeled and diced
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup white-whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
6 cups chicken stock
1 (10-ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini
5 ounces greens of your choice (I used a mixture of spinach, collards and baby kale)
2 cups milk
salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS:

Cook Italian sausage in a large stockpot over medium-high heat until browned, crumbling it as it cooks. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked sausage to a separate plate and set aside.** Reserve two tablespoons of grease in the pan, discarding the rest.
Stir in onions and carrots, and saute for 4-5 minutes or until the onions are soft and translucent, stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic and saute for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant, stirring occasionally. Stir in the flour until it’s evenly coating the veggies, and cook for an additional 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
Gradually add in the chicken stock, and stir to combine. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer. Then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Stir in the cooked sausage, tortellini, spinach, and milk, and continue simmering for 4-5 minutes, or until the tortellini is al dente.
Taste, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve immediately. Or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days
