Creamy Tortellini Soup with Spinach

This creamy Tortellini Soup soup with spinach is perfect for when nothing but comfort food will do.

I have several soup lovers in my family, so I have lots of soup recipes as a result. This one tops the list of favorites. We first made this creamy tortellini soup with spinach, Italian sausage, and other veggies just as the news of Covid-19 started to settle on our minds. It was so good, and exactly the kind of comfort we needed at the time.   This soup will definitely have your family coming back for seconds.

Start by browning the sausage in a large frying pan over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain the meat and set aside.  I use a plate lined with a few paper towels to soak up any extra grease. Wash the vegetables thoroughly and chop the carrots, onion, and zucchini into large chunks to put into a food processor. I love to use my little Cuisine Art food processor to save time on chopping all of the veggies.

Pulse just enough to break the vegetables into small bite-sized pieces. Be careful not to over-pulse.  You only want them to be coarsely chopped, not ground up into tiny bits. Sauté the veggies in the same pan that you browned the meat in with olive oil until they are crisp-tender. Add the minced garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes more.

Stir in the flour until it is mixed thoroughly with the vegetables, and slowly add the chicken broth.  Stir and continue cooking and string until the mixture thickens slightly into a creamy sauce and begins to simmer.  Add the milk, meat, tortellini, spinach, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cover and continue to cook on med-Low for approximately 20 minutes or until tortellini is tender.

About Laura

I  am a Southern California turned small town, Midwest Mom. I am wife to Bruce and mom to my three girls.

Back when I first started my organizing journey in 2013, I had what I thought of as a dirty little secret. I have ADHD and although I am organized, and enjoy the process of sorting, and tidying. I knew that there were many others with ADHD who really struggled with staying organized. I had a case of imposter syndrome and mostly kept the fact that I had ADHD to myself. That is until I learned that there are other successful professional organizers who have also learned to compensate for their ADHD.

I eventually realized that my need for order and simplicity actually stems from having ADHD as a way to compensate for my short attention span. So my gifts and my challenges are all ironically tied together to create who I am,  and I am able to relate to and help others as a result of this coping method that I have developed for myself.

I help women and moms with ADHD, but I also help those who struggle with clutter without having ADHD.  Because simplicity and less clutter are always at the heart of staying organized, there is much overlap when it comes to finding solutions to clutter and disorganization.

I am dedicated to keeping my life as simple as possible and to helping others do the same by teaching them how to declutter their homes, simplify their lives, and manage their busy families better.

I have been helping others stay organized since 2013.

It is my deepest hope that you will find resources here that will bring you closer to living a simpler, more intentional, and more peaceful life. 

always have



in your space…

…but let it be

as simple

as a daisy

in a vase.
