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

Reduce heat add spinach, basil, pepper & pepper flakes. Cook 2-3 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted.
Serve with cheese.

You can cook the tortellini right in the soup, but I find it absorbs too much of the liquid; try it both ways.

Personal Notes:
There are lots of great soups out there, but this one from our Montrose PA neighbor, Gail Overfield, became an instant family favorite after she brought us some on a cold winter day in 2012. Guaranteed you'll make it again once you try it.
