Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Let's talk bout my newly discovered love for chicken sausage. Weird, I know, but stay with me. I work right around the corner from a Trader Joes, and a few weeks ago I discovered their Italian style chicken sausage, and it was love. They're a super quick option for adding some good and tasty protein when I'm making pasta, or a skillet of veggies. I've also been trying some other brands then the one sold at TJs, and most are pretty good, but so far the one I found there is my favorite. 

Now lets talk about soup, as I am even more obsessed with soup. Now that the northeast is really getting cold, I basically could eat soup for every meal and be totally fine with it. So when I decided to try my hand at a new type of soup the other day, I could help myself but to go ahead and throw some Chicken Sausage in there too. This soup is seriously so delicious. It's a perfect winter soup to cozy up with, and just a little cup can easily fill you up!

    You are a girl after my own heart, I’ve always said if I had to eat only one ‘type’ of food, it would be soup, In just the last week I’ve made chunky veg and bean soup, smooth vegetable and chorizo soup and Thai yellow curry soup – all so cheap, tasty and easy!
