  • 250 grams Dried Cheese Tortellini
  • 200 grams Italian Sausage
  • 2 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Onion
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic minced
  • 1 can dice Tomato (14.5 oz )
  • 2 tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
  • salt to taste
  • 4 cups Chicken Stock
  • ½ cup Half & Half increase up to 1 cup for a more creamier soup
  • Grated parmesan and chopped fresh parsley for serving


  • Set the Instant Pot to saute mode. When hot add oil.
  • Stir in chopped onion and garlic. Saute for a minute for the onion to soften and raw garlic smell has disappeared.
  • Add crumbled sausage to the pan. Brown it for 2 minutes.
  • Add crushed tomatoes, Tomato paste, Italian seasoning, chilli flakes, salt and 2 cups stock( reserve the rest to add later). Mix everything well (Scarp bottom of the pan to release any stuck brown bits)
  • Stir in dried tortellini.
  • Switch to Manual mode. Cover the lid. Set for 4 minutes on high pressure.
  • It will take around 5 minutes to come to full pressure and the timer to start.
  • When 4 minute ends, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes. Release rest of the pressure manually.
  • Once all the pressure is released, carefully open the lid.
  • Switch to sautee mode again. Add rest of the stock and half & half. Stir gently.
  • Let it cook for another 30 seconds or so. Switch off the pot.
  • Serve with grated parmesan and chopped parsley sprinkled on top.


  • Don't add all the stock at once. If there is too much f liquid, then it might come from the nozzle while releasing the pressure manually. 
  • The Soup might look bit on the thinner side initially, but the tortellini will absorb quite a bit of liquid even after you switch off the pot.  
  • Adjsut the amount of salt towards the end. Sausage and the stock both contains some amount to salt.
