MY husband's grandmother used to make this soup with her own homemade sausage and homemade tortellini. Since it has been passed down, we don’t “hand make” those ingredients but it’s almost as good as hers. It’s a great way to get the kids to eat spinach!

"This is an excellent and easy soup recipe. I increased the recipe by using a box of chicken broth, a can of undiluted chicken broth, 3 cups of torn spinach, 3 cups of frozen cheese tortellini and 1 lb of bulk mild Italian sausage. The sausage I bought from the store was seasoned with anise. The aroma of the anise was wonderful and added just the right seasoning to the soup. I married into an Italian family and this recipe is a keeper. I'm only sorry I didn't have any home made stock at the time."
