I make this soup with hot sausage and chicken tortellini. Makes a delicious dinner to warm you up on a cold day. The leftovers are great for lunch.

We enjoyed the soup. I put twice as much tortellini in it, added 1/4 c Parmesan cheese, and 1/2 tsp of garlic salt. It was delicious. I had used Italian sausage that was sweet, next time I would use the spicy one.

I used 2 cans of tomatoes & added some diced carrots & onion. Substituted kale for the spinach & added some garlic. Sprinkled with parmesan cheese to serve. Easy and delicious!

Delicious soup...easy to make! I added a chopped onion to the pot, and I sauteed the sausage instead of dropping bits into the soup. I will definitely make this again. Thank you Cynthia!
