This is one of the best soups I've ever made and super easy. I skipped the tomato paste bc I wasn't going to buy a whole can for one spoonful. Didn't even miss it. I also threw everything into the crockpot and let it sit for 4 hours on high. Sausage needed a little more time to cook but it was fabulous. I also used polish sausage rather than smoked sausage. Whole bag of spinach and a whole bag of frozen tortellini (14 ish oz). Definitely will make again. Read More

So simple to make and very tasty. I've made this a few times. I skip the canned tomatos and use the entire can of tomato paste. Spinach is great but sometimes i switch it up with Kale. I do add a bit of italian seasoning. Works with any good sausage. I use the dried cheese tortillini and it works just fine. Read More

I was looking for a soup recipe that used sausage but no beans and this one looked like it would fit the bill. I followed the recipe but unfortunately I didn't have any tortellini but I still wanted to make this soup. I used 9 ounces of pasta instead and its still great. The flavours are really nice with the sausage and tomato and I didn't add any salt because the sausage was salty enough but give it a taste and chose if you want to add salt. I posted this so that anyone that wants to make this and doesn't have tortellini will know that the recipe works with that small change. Update-The pasta soaked up all the liquid in this soup so I would use less pasta. It still tastes really good but it's more of a stew. Try 6 ounces of pasta instead. Read More

This soup is easy and sooo good on this cold winter day! I used a 20 oz. package of tortellini which was awesome but the soup might need a little more liquid (another small can of tomatos or more broth). I also used turkey sausage. All in all good comfort soup with Italian bread. Read More

This is an absolutely easy and quick recipe. I make food at home during lunch and this quick and easy recipe almost never has enough even though I use a 19 oz bag of tortellini. This is simple easy to modify to your tastes and excellent. Read More
