Tortellini Soup

This italian style soup is great for any weeknight meal. It's adapted from a recipe in one of my cookbooks and my family really enjoyed it.

Tortellini Soup
12-16 oz. fully cooked chicken sausages, sliced
2 T. olive oil
1 T. dried minced onion
3 t. garlic powder
2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth
2 c. water
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 (18 oz.) package cheese tortellini (refrigerated or frozen)
1 (6 oz.) package spinach
1 t. dried basil
salt and pepper
parmesan cheese

In a large pot, heat oil, sausage, dried onion, and garlic powder. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add broth, water, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Add tortellini and cook for 5-7 minutes or until pasta is cooked. Add spinach, basil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook just until spinach wilts. Serve with parmesan cheese.
