32 oz chicken broth
1 (20 oz) pkg frozen cheese-filled tortellini
1/2-1 lb. Italian Sausage
1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced ital-style tomatoes, undrained
3-4 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 bag fresh spinach (or frozen, thawed)
2 tsp minced fresh basil (1 tsp dried)
In a large saucepan lightly coated with olive oil, brown sausage, onion and garlic until sausage crumbles, and is no longer pink. Drain. Combine broth, tomatoes, basil, and sausage mixture; heat to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to simmer and add tortellini and spinach. Simmer for 10 minutes or until tortellini is done and fresh spinach is wilted. Garnish each bowl with grated parmesan.
*Can substitute shrimp for sausage.
Doesn't that just sound warm?
