Spicy Italian sausage, tender baby spinach, and fluffy tortellini come together for one delicious bowl of goodness. Spinach and Tortellini soup is going to become your go to winter staple.

Another day, another cozy bowl of soup.

At this rate, I should think about changing my blog name to Soup Thyme. I’m kidding– but only slightly!

This soup Michael has deemed “Pizza Soup.” I’m not sure on the name– but it does have all of the flavors there. Italian sausage, cheese, tomatoes, all in a garlicky sauce.

I say this about most soups, but this Spinach and Tortellini soup is one that is truly so easy to prepare. The only chopping you have to do is the garlic and onions, and it’s completely a one pot wonder! The tortellini are fresh and cook in just minutes. Josie’s Organic Spinach is fresh and tender, and can be added right at the end to maintain its color and texture.

    Are the tomatoes essential to this soup could I use crushed tomatoes instead my family will not eat canned tomatoes

      Just use a cup of fresh chopped up tomatoes but you'll have to cook them a bit during the process where you add the stock. Instead of adding the remaining ingredients when the stock boils cook the tomatoes for about 5 or 6 minutes. Then follow the recipe.
