Why Spinach Tortellini Soup Is Great for Toddlers:

  1. Nutrient-Rich: This soup includes healthy ingredients such as spinach, tomatoes, and tortellini, providing essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber for your toddler’s growth and development.
  2. High in Protein: Italian sausage and cheese tortellini offer a good amount of protein to keep your toddler energized.
  3. Easy to Prepare: With only five ingredients and straightforward instructions, you can whip up this comforting soup in no time.
  4. Picky Eater Approved: The flavors of Italian sausage and cheesy tortellini are often a hit with picky eaters, making mealtime more enjoyable for both kids and parents.


  • 29 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 16 oz cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 pound Italian sausage


  1. Brown the Italian Sausage: In a large skillet, cook the Italian sausage over medium heat until it’s browned and cooked through. Break it up into crumbles as it cooks. Once done, set it aside.
  2. Prepare the Soup Base: In a separate soup pot, combine the diced tomatoes and chicken broth. Heat the mixture over medium heat and bring it to a simmer.
  3. Add Milk: Once the tomato and chicken broth mixture is simmering, stir in the cup of milk. Continue to simmer.
  4. Incorporate Tortellini, Spinach, and Sausage: Add the 16 oz of cheese tortellini, 1 cup of chopped spinach, and the cooked Italian sausage to the simmering soup. Stir gently to combine all the ingredients.
  5. Simmer: Allow the soup to simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the spinach is wilted, and the tortellini is cooked. Ensure the tortellini is tender and cooked to your desired level.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Once the spinach is wilted and the tortellini is cooked to your liking, your Spinach Tortellini Soup is ready. Serve it to your hungry family while it’s still warm.


To store any leftover Spinach Tortellini Soup:

  • Refrigeration: Place the soup in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave when needed.
