Do you ever have those days when you’re at the grocery store but lacking dinner inspiration? That was me, yesterday. I called the Johnsonville Sausage Support Center (844-9-SAUSAGE) and talked to a very nice Johnsonville employee who then texted me a bunch of great recipe ideas for both breakfast and dinner, like Hawaiian Style Sausage Sliders and Grown Up Mac & Cheese. Dinner problem solved! You can call 24/7 between now and September 8th, and again between September 11th and September 15th. Don’t feel like chatting on the phone? You can text the Bob Bot at 97406, a chatbot robot who has tons of delicious recipe ideas waiting for you.
This tortellini soup recipe starts with some veggies – onion, carrot and celery to be exact. The veggies are cooked in a large pot, then in goes a package of Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausages. Feel free to use any type of Johnsonville sausage that you like here, the Sweet Italian is my family’s favorite!
The sausage and vegetables are combined with beans, spinach and cheese tortellini for a hearty and satisfying soup that will please the whole family. You can even make a double batch of this soup and freeze some for another night. I love that it’s loaded with plenty of nutritious ingredients and protein. I often make extra so that I can have some for lunch the next day.
Dinner time doesn’t have to be fancy or overly complicated. When I’m in need of inspiration for quick and easy meals, I head over to the Sausage Support Center website, it’s full of great ideas that will keep your family happy and fed any time of the day!
