Tierra Tips to Engage your Little Helper:

  • This is a colorful dish- identify all of the colors as they go in the pot! Say them in Spanish as well!
  • For younger kids, this is a good recipe to develop fine motor skills like measuring, pouring and stirring.


  • Olive Oil
  • Minced Garlic
  • Minced Onion
  • Chicken Sausage (pre-cooked and sliced, or ground and sauteed)
  • Tortellini or Pasta
  • 1 jar Basil Marinara
  • 32 oz Chicken Broth
  • 1 package Spinach
  • 1 Zucchini


  1. In a large pot, add the olive oil and minced garlic. Let it simmer for a minute or two, and then add the minced onions.
  2. If your chicken sausage is cooked, add the slices into the pot. If it is uncooked, saute it with the minced ingredients.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and let simmer.
  4. Add the jar of marinara, let it all boil and stir occasionally to mix!
  5. As it boils, you may add water if the soup seems too thick.
  6. Add the package of tortellini or pasta, let cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Turn off the heat and add the veggies- they will cook very quickly!
  8. Top with parmesan and enjoy!
