Tortellini Soup

This past Saturday was also National Tortellini Day and I decided to celebrate with a simple and delicious tortellini soup.  This soup comes together really easily- no simmering all day or tons of prep work ahead of time.  

Even better when I know that I generally always have what I need to make it on hand.  For example- I like to use evaporated milk in this recipe because I always keep a can in the pantry- but you could also swap out cream or half and half if you happen to have it available.

I love the flavor that they sausage brings to this dish.  I like to use Owen’s HOT for this because it brings a lot of heat and spice.  I’m always looking for recipes to sub in sausage or ground turkey after recently learning that Isabella has a food intolerance to beef; she ate TWO bowls of this for dinner!

I wish the sodium were lower. I took out the teaspoon of salt and added more water and chopped kale. It was good.

This looks and sounds absolutely amazing!!! I'm thinking since my daughter doesn't like spicy sausage that much I could get a mild or even try hamburger. I do like the simplicity of your recipes and I'm SOOO glad I found your site. Thank you
