Three Cheers for Soup Recipes: The Cool-Weather Comfort Food

November 17, 2023 by Kenmore

We can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we are that Soup Season is now back in full swing. Rich and hearty, warm and inviting, every bowl of homemade soup is like a festival of flavor for your taste buds… and a joyful hug for your tummy!

Soup Recipes for All Season

More than that, making a big pot of soup checks off a whole bunch of items on your seasonal to-do list:

✅ You’ll likely make enough for tonight’s dinner and tomorrow’s as well… and yes, it always tastes better the second day!

✅ If there’s still some left over after day 2, soup usually freezes pretty well.

✅ It’s a great way to clear out some unused ingredients from your pantry and random items from your produce bins.

✅ It’s easy – no fancy-schmancy cooking techniques required.

✅ Soup is a tasty way to get your kids to eat their veggies!

✅ Nothing in the world makes your kitchen smell better than cooking soup, low and slow.

✅ Homemade soup is always a great first course at dinner parties, holiday celebrations and family gatherings.

So, as you can tell, we’re more than just a little excited to be making soup in the Kenmore Kitchen again. And we invite you to join in the fun with these yummy, soul-warming soup recipes!

This soup brings a lot of bold Italian flavor that warms the soul on a chilly evening. It’s hearty enough to serve as a main course, and it makes a favorable impression when you bring it along to a potluck get-together… you’ll be bringing an empty pot back home, guaranteed!


16 oz. mild Italian sausage, casings removed

1 medium onion, chopped

6 garlic cloves, minced

1 quart chicken stock

1 large can (28 oz.) of tomato puree

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 bunch of kale, stems removed and leaves roughly chopped

1 package (9 to 12 oz.) of fresh tortellini

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

Parmesan cheese, grated for serving


Step 1 – Over medium-high heat, cook the sausage, onions, and garlic for about 5-6 minutes. Break up the sausage as it browns. Drain off excess fat, if necessary.

Step 2 – Stir in the chicken stock and tomatoes, and bring to a low boil and add the salt and pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until slightly reduced, about 15 minutes. Stir in the kale, tortellini, and red pepper flakes (if using) and cook until the kale is wilted and the tortellini is tender, 3-5 minutes.

Step 3 – Serve with grated parmesan on top and enjoy!
