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!
