  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage hot, mild, or sweet
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 28 ounces can crushed tomatoes
  • 15 ounces can cannellini beans rinsed and drained
  • 8 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese plus more for garnish
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil plus more for garnish


  • Line a large plate with 3 sheets of paper towel, and set aside. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat add the Italian sausage and use a wooden spoon to break the meat apart into chunks. Cook until browned and completely cooked thru, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and add the onion and cook until translucent and starting to brown on the edges, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, beans, tortellini, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper and increase the heat to high. Bring the mixture to a low boil, and then reduce the heat to low and cook for 8 minutes. Stir in the sausage, cream, Parmesan, and basil and cook for 2 additional minutes.
  • Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with shredded Parmesan cheese and chopped basil.
