1 pound ground Italian Sausage

28 ounces canned crushed tomatoes
32 ounces vegetable broth chicken works too

HOW TO MAKE TORTELLINI SOUP WITH ITALIAN SAUSAGE & SPINACH

To make the Soup:

Step 1: Over medium-high heat, heat a large, heavy-bottomed pan. Add in vegetable oil once the pan is hot and saute the diced onion until soft.

Step 2: Add the crumbled Italian sausage and garlic into the pan. Continue cooking until the sausage is no longer pink.

Step 3: Add in and stir the crushed tomatoes, vegetable or chicken broth, basil, salt, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes, covered.

Step 4: Now, add the tortellini and spinach. Simmer for 10 minutes more or until the pasta is tender.

Step 5: Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan before serving. Enjoy!

To make the Crostini:

Step 1: Slice in half-inch thickness the baguette. Spread butter on one side. Transfer into a hot skillet, butter side down, and toast until golden brown.

Step 2: Turn the bread on the other side and sprinkle over the Parmesan. Continue to toast until golden brown.

Step 3: Once done, place on a plate. If the cheese has not fully melted, quickly cover loosely with foil.

NOTES:

If you desire a creamier soup, just add half a cup of Greek yoghurt or sour cream.
