This brothy tomato soup has all the familiar flavors of classic marinara sauce with a little kick thanks to crumbled up hot Italian sausage. We simmer tender broccolini in the broth with plump cheese tortellini, then finish it with freshly grated Parmesan for a touch of cheesy decadence.



  1. Heat the olive oil in a large wide pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring and breaking it up into chunks, until browned all over, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, rosemary and red pepper flakes; cook, stirring, until the garlic is softened, about 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the soup is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium high and bring the soup to a rapid simmer. Add the broccolini and tortellini and cook until the broccolini is tender and the tortellini is cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the soup from the heat and season with salt. Divide among bowls and top with grated Parmesan.
