"Instant Pot Tortellini Soup is a weeknight staple, full of healthy and nourishing ingredients to fill you up and keep you warm. A great family-friendly winter meal! To lower the fat, you can certainly use low-fat versions, but you won’t get the same creamy consistency if that’s what you’re looking for. Top tips: If you’re looking to save time, chop your veggies the night before. I recommend using bone broth – it’s tasty and you get extra protein, plus glycine! If you like your spinach more wilted, you can add it in earlier, but I prefer to do it last."

Cooking MethodPressure Cooker


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 16 ounces ground Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 large carrots, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pepper to taste
  1. Start by pressing SAUTE button on instant pot. Use NORMAL setting. When it reaches hot, add olive oil. Next, add ground sausage, breaking into crumbles and cooking until lightly browned.

  2. While still on SAUTE mode, add diced onion, garlic, carrots, celery, garlic and seasonings to sausage. Stir them around and cook until onions turn translucent and vegetables soften, about 3-5 minutes.

  3. If there are any brown spots, use water or a little broth to de-glaze the pot as you scrape the bottom. Make sure to press cancel when you’re done.

  4. Add broth, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes to instant pot. Turn valve to SEALING position and select PRESSURE COOK/MANUAL setting. Set pressure cooker to high and timer to 5 minutes. It will take 10-15 minutes for the pressure cooker to reach high and warm up.

  5. Let pot naturally release for 3-5 minutes, and then manually do quick release of remaining pressure and remove the lid. Press CANCEL.

  6. With liquid in there, set pot back to SAUTE setting. Add in tortellini to pot. Stir and cook on high for 3-5 minutes or until tortellini are cooked.
