Butternut squash soup with tortellini.


I try to make the majority of our meals from scratch, but tonight was all about odds/ends/leftovers. This was so easy and delicious! I can’t really even call it a recipe, but here’s what went into it (makes 2 large bowls):

1 small (16oz) box Imagine butternut squash soup
1 spicy italian chicken sausage (defrosted, sliced)
2 small handfulls dried mushroom tortellinis (cooked, drained)
2 cups Trader Joe’s Greens With Envy* (defrosted, chopped)
2 tbsp shredded asiago cheese

Put everything but the cheese into the soup. Heat. Serve sprinkled with asiago.

That’s it! Yuuuummmm.

*Greens With Envy is the best frozen veggie product EVER: organic spinach, broccoli, edamame, asparagus, and green beans. I try to always have it on hand, as it can be added to just about any dish for extra deliciousness and nutritiousness.

    Hi Anna! I decided to give this recipe a shot. I never had butternut squash before making this recipe, so I was a little shocked at butternut squash being sweet. But the spicy (and boy, was it spicy!) Italian sausage really gave the meal character and I think helped offset the sweetness. Also, I couldn’t find mushroom tortellini, so I had chicken and herb. Probably not the best choice, whoops. But overall, it was a satisfying meal. Thanks! =)

    Also, I went to Trader Joe’s but I couldn’t find the Greens with Envy. I realize that this blog post is older (2007), but wondering if you know if they have discontinued it?
