Rich, full of flavour and made in the Instant Pot, this Creamy Tortellini Sausage soup is GOOD EATING!  For the ultimate side dish?

I have the perfect suggestions.   Cheesy Ciabatta Garlic Bread and the Best Ever Caesar Salad.   Honestly, there should be leftovers with a meal this rich, but I doubt that will happen.  This meal is that good, honest.


Cooked Cheese Tortellini in creamy tomato broth with crumbled sausage served in a rustic blue bowl
