Day 2 to be thankful! I'm thankful that I live in a country fought for by soldiers, so that I have the right to pick who I think is best to lead this country to the best of their abilities. I voted today, did you?
Italian Tortellini Soup
3 Italian turkey sausage links
1 medium onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 pkg. refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 pkg. fresh baby spinach, chopped
2 1/4 tsp. basil (3/4 tsp. dried oregano)
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
dash crushed red pepper
shredded Parmesan cheese
Crumble sausage into a Dutch oven; add onion. Cook and sir over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir two minutes longer. Add chicken broth and tomatoes then bring to a boil. Stir in tortellini; return to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook uncovered for 5-8 minutes or until the pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
Add the spinach, basil, pepper and red pepper flakes and cook 2-3 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
Happy Tortellini Tuesday!
