Quick and Easy Tortellini Soup


I saw this adorable Nessie soup ladle on Pinterest when it was making the rounds a while back and knew I just had to order one.   It was on back order at the time I ordered it and was told it would be months before it would be back in stock but then I was surprised when it arrived after only a two week wait. It appears they have plenty in stock now.  I really love how cute and adorable this soup ladle is.  Here is a handy link if you are interested in purchasing one for yourself or for a cute gift.



 They also have one in a pretty green shown below that was not available when I ordered mine. 




Okay, so now on with the recipe for this delicious tortellini soup with sausage.   I usually substitute Italian chicken sausage  to make it healthier.  I also toss in some more spinach.  This one of those great hearty soup recipes that you can really add whatever you personal preferences are.  I love how quick and easy this is to throw together but yet it tastes like you worked all day.  Super yum!
