  2. Add flour, red pepper, salt, pepper and garlic to melted butter and cook for 1 minute. Will form a soft paste or ball. Slowly drizzle in milk and simmer until it thickens. Add Sausage, onions and potatoes and stir to coat well with milk gravy. Simmer long enough to heat through, 1 or 2 minutes.

  3. Slowly add in broth and cheese tortellini. Stir well. Turn off Sauté and place lid on. Turn vent to seal. Select pressure cook and set time to 5 minutes. Once cooking cycle completes, allow pressure to naturally release for 10-15 minutes. Carefully turn vent to open to release any remaining steam. Carefully open lid, stir and add in spinach. Mix well and serve. Enjoy!

*Note, if soup is not thick enough, once cooking cycle is finished, sauté for a few minutes to thicken.
