Soup. I love soup. And since it’s still snowing here in MI, there’s nothing that hits the spot better than some tasty, simple soup. The pics on this particular post are about two years old. My son (in the second picture) and a guy at work LOVE this soup and ask for it often. I’ve even been told by my friend at work that he dreamt about it. So, it’s has to be good if he is dreaming about it. So, come on…give it a try!
It’s super simple, hearty and quick for those weeknights
Tortellini and Polish Sausage Soup
2 boxes beef broth
1 package onion soup mix
1 package smoked sausage (cut into bite size pieces)
19 oz. bag cheese-filled tortellini
pinch each of oregano, basil, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and ground black pepper
(optional) 1/3 – 1/2 of a package of frozen spinach (thawed)
Add onion soup mix to beef broth in a large pan along with the spices. Simmer.
In the meantime, cook polish sausage in a skillet until browned; add to simmering broth.
Cook tortellini as directed on package. Add to broth right before serving. Add spinach if desired.
Serve with garlic bread and enjoy!

Variation: Add Northern beans.
*Notes: Add tortellini and spinach right before serving or to each personal dish/bowl. Once it sits too long the tortellini and spinach tend to get soggy. Just my personal opinion and experience…
