Introduction

This meal comes together SUPER fast! A very hearty dish that goes great with a salad. It's also versatile--add additional vegetables or even a can of drained and rinsed cannellini beans for more protein. This meal comes together SUPER fast!

Ingredients

    3 Italian turkey sausage links (4 ounces each), casings removed (I used the "hot" sausage version)
    1 medium onion, chopped
    6 garlic cloves, minced
    4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
    1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
    1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
    2-1/4 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 3/4 teaspoon dried basil (or, you can substitute thyme and oregano)
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Dash crushed red pepper flakes (optional if not using hot turkey sausage)
    Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional


Directions

DIRECTIONS

Crumble sausage into a Dutch oven; add onion. Cook and stir over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.

Add garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.

Add the broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil.

Stir in tortellini; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.

Add the spinach, basil, pepper and pepper flakes; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted. Serve with cheese if desired.

Yield: 6 servings (2 quarts
