On a cold winter day there is nothing better than a big bowl of homemade soup. After having this soup at a local restaurant it became my mission to come up with a recipe that was similar. I enjoy this soup with a nice piece of crusty bread.
1/2 lb Italian sausage (hot or mild)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 (13 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth
1 (13 1/2 ounce) can beef broth
1 (8 ounce) package cheese tortellini
1 (10 ounce) package fresh spinach
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can Italian-style diced tomatoes
1) In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook and stir sausage and garlic until done. Drain.
2) Add broth and tortellini; heat to a boil.
3) Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes.
4) Add spinach and tomatoes; simmer an additional 5 minutes.
