{Spinach Tortellini Soup}

My mom's recipes are the best, and on days that I'm homesick and would give anything to live in the same town as my family, I find comfort in cooking their food.

Mom's Spinach Tortellini with Spicy Italian Sausage is delicious, and y'all will love it. See recipe below: 

1 T olive oil
1 lb Italian Sausage
½ cup diced onion
1 T minced garlic
1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes
1 32-oz box vegetable or chicken broth
2 T chopped fresh basil
½ t salt
1 t pepper
1 package 3-cheese tortellini
1 cup packed fresh spinach
** I used low sodium chicken broth, dried basil spice, and a bag of fresh organic spinach. 

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Add diced onion and sauté until onions are soft.
  3. Add Italian Sausage and garlic to pan.  Cook until sausage is no longer pink.
  4. Stir in crushed tomatoes, broth, basil, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover.  Let soup simmer for 20 – 30 minutes.
  5. Add tortellini and spinach and simmer for about ten minutes, until pasta is tender.
  6. Serve with shredded Parmesan Cheese. Enjoy!!
