Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 ounces hot or sweet Italian sausage, removed from casings
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 medium rib celery, chopped (about 2/3 cup)
  • One 15-ounce can white beans, such as cannellini or navy, rinsed and drained
  • One 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • One 8- to 9-ounce package of your favorite refrigerated tortellini
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving
Directions
  • Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Add the onions and celery and continue to cook, stirring, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, tomatoes, broth and 4 cups water and increase the heat to medium-high to bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer, adjusting the heat if necessary, until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

  • Add the tortellini and continue to cook until they are tender, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in bowls topped with a spoonful of pesto and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan.
