Italian Sausage, Kale and Tortellini Soup

Once I feel a chill in the air, I immediately crave soups. They are so comforting in the fall and winter months and I love that there are so many different kinds to enjoy. They are an easy way to get your veggies too! This soup in particular packs huge flavor from the sausage and tortellini, but also has a good dose of kale and veggies to keep you full.
Serve this with crusty bread or garlic bread for dipping. Delish!

1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sausage and cook until the sausage is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.

2. Add fennel, carrots and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

3. Add tomato paste, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Add chicken stock and fire-roasted tomatoes and bring soup to a boil.

4. Add kale and tortellini and cook for 2-3 minutes longer, or until the tortilla start to float to the top. Remove pan from heat and ladle soup into bowls.
