'No soup for you'

I really hope you all got that. My favorite episode.

Anyway, here's a great one. Of course from this month's Healthy Cooking. I seriously love this magazine and my mom is getting me a subscription for Christmas. Yay!!

Rustic Italian Tortellini Soup
modified slightly :)

3 Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
1 onion chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans (14.5 oz) chicken broth
1 3/4 cups water
1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes
1 9 oz. package of refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and drained (you could also use fresh - 6 oz coarsely chopped)
3/4 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. pepper
Shredded Parmesan Cheese (optional)

crumble sausage, onion and garlic in dutch oven over medium heat and cook until meat is no longer pink.
Add broth, water, and tomatoes and bring to boil.
Add tortellini and return to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until tortellini are tender.
Add spinach, basil and pepper, cook 2-3 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted (if using fresh)
top with cheese.
4 pts for 1 1/3 cup (Add the extra point if you pile on the cheese)

This is great with a good peace of soft bread.

Lily eats this up and Eloise has to be convinced it's princess soup. She won't eat the tomatoes, but she'll eat the 'leaves'. Silly kid.

Happy Fall-Soup-Dinner to you all!

Yum. Thanks for this one - I have been making soup several times a week. Sunday I made homemade chicken with rice that turned into rice with chicken soup.... uh... a little too much rice. This recipe reminds me of bit of the Zuppa Toscana I made a couple weeks ago - except way better for you. Phew. ;-)
