How To Make Tortellini Soup

Gather your ingredients:

Remove the casing from the sausage. If you want, you can make small balls from the sausage as I did, or break the sausage with a wooden spoon. Select Saute on your Instant Pot and add oil. Once the oil is hot, add sausage and cook until browned.

Remove the sausage and add the onion. Cook the onion for 3 minutes till browned a little.

Once the onion is tender, add broth and cream cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted.

Place back in the sausage. Lock the lid and cook the sausage on High pressure for 5 minutes.

Perform a quick pressure release and add tortellini.

Saute for 7 minutes. Add cream, spinach, basil, and cheddar cheese.

Cook until the cheese is melted. Serve warm.
