1 pound of sausage (sweet sausage, pork sausage..whatever)
1 small onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of basil
1/2 teaspoon of parsley
48 oz box of chicken broth
1 cup of water
2 carrots (chopped)
3 stalks of celery (chopped)
1 can of diced tomatoes (drained)
a batch of spinach ( *you could also use zuchinni)
8oz frozen cheese tortellini
salt and pepper to taste
** Top with mozzerella or parmesan cheese**
Cook the sausage, onion and garlic and drain off the grease. Add the oregano, basil and parsley. Then add the broth, water, carrots, celery and diced tomatoes. Bring all of this to a boil and add the tortellini and let it cook for 2 minutes and then add the spinach till wilted in soup. Now it's all ready to eat.
**I made this up tonight so I hope it turns out good for you. It was good to us. Serve it with garlic bread and whatever else you want.:) It kinda taste like the mini meatball soup. They are both good though.
