It’s been a while since I made this, but this is a staple in our house. It is perfect for a cold and rainy night like tonight.
3/4 lb Italian sausage
2 (14.5 ounce) cans Italian diced tomatoes
1 cup red wine
2 cans chicken broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pound dried tortellini
1-2 cups fresh baby spinach (depending on how much you like spinach)
grated or shredded Parmesan cheese for garnish
In a Dutch oven, cook Italian sausage using a wooden spoon to crumble. When Italian sausage is cooked through, add tomatoes, wine, chicken broth and garlic. Bring to a simmer.
Add tortellini and cook until done.
Add spinach right before serving. Stir until wilted.
Serve and garnish with Parmesan.
Did I change anything? Sometimes I add a little chopped zucchini and/or some diced carrots.
What did the family think? We love this one. It’s definitely comfort food at our house.
