  • 1 white onion

  • 1 or 2 lbs Italian sausage (I used 2)
  • 28oz can crush tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • A big container of chicken broth
  • Salt

1. Pour olive oil into a large pot or Dutch oven on medium-high heat.

2. Add diced white onion, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.

3. Once the onions are slightly cooked, add Italian sausage.

4. Brown the sausage, seasoning with salt and pepper.

5. Once the sausage is mostly cooked, add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and chicken broth, and season to taste with the listed spices. (You can choose to drain the fat from the sausage if desired).

6. Allow the ingredients to come to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes.

7. Add tortellini, and let it cook for a few minutes before adding cream and spinach. The spinach will shrink as it cooks.
