Tortellini Soup

I can't wait to try Chalece's broccoli soup, I love broccoli soup.  I found this on a website called Domestication in Progress.  I think Laura referred us there one time.  I made it all winter and it is definitely one of our favorites!!!  I really love it and it changes every time depending on what kind of veggies you put in.  Hope you enjoy!

The Ingredients

1 1/2 pkg tortellini (you can find this in the "deli meats and cheeses" section of the grocery store)
- they come in packages of about 10 oz. I usually buy two and use a package and a half. The leftover tortellini is also great with a little pasta sauce for lunch the next day. Or you can freeze it.
24 oz. chicken broth
4 garlic cloves - minced
14 oz. can of stewed tomatoes
1/2 lb. ground sausage (I like to buy the Jimmy Dean roll type things.... you know what I am talking about?  It is usually buy the bacon, other sausage, and hot dogs - basically all the healthy stuff! Haha
- you can use the whole pound if you want to but I find it overwhelms the soup. basically, it becomes "sausage soup" with tortellini - stick with the 1/2 lb.
1 tsp. basil
1 pkg chopped spinach 
(in the freezer section, but thaw and drain before adding it to the soup - I only add half the package)
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
1 can tomato sauce (optional - but I always add it)

* I also think adding some white beans, zucchini, or chickpeas would make this soup even better... I just haven't tried it yet.

Well, Rob and I just made this for the missionaries. I quadrupled it... my pan wasn't big enough so I had to use 2 big pans! But they loved it, and so did Rob and I! Thanks for the yummy recipe!
