Ready in 45 minutes

A quick variation on chicken noodle soup. I usually have the ingredients in my pantry and freezer. Inspired by a Tyler Florence recipe.


1 Extra virgin olive oil
2 large carrots; sliced
1 medium Onion; chopped
2 ribs celery; sliced
2 cloves garlic; smashed and chopped
1 bay leaf
2 sprigs thyme
8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
0.5 cup flat-leaf parsley; chopped
4 black peppercorns
12 ounces turkey sausage; frozen
9 ounces fresh tortellini; or frozen
Kosher salt; to taste
Black pepper; fresh-ground to taste
Parmigiano-Reggiano; grated for garnish
Flat-leaf parsley; chopped for garnish

Original recipe makes 6



Set a large stock pot over medium heat. Add olive oil, carrot, onion, celery, garlic, bay leaf, thyme leaves and gently saute until fragrant, about 5 to 7 minutes. Pour in chicken broth, add parsley and black peppercorns. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer while you work on turkey sausage and tortellini.

Cook turkey sausage as directed on package. Drain sausages and cut into bite-size pieces. Drop tortellini into soup. Cook until they float and are tender. Once turkey is finished, add to pot of broth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Give soup a final seasoning and serve in bowls with a sprinkle of Parmesan and parsley.
