1. Saute sausage, onion & garlic over medium heat until meat is slightly browned.

2. Dump the mix and all drippings into the slow cooker, add next four ingredients and cook on low for 2 hours.

3. Add the tortellini and spinach to the soup, bump heat to high for 1 additional hour.

NOTE: I mixed 1/2 lb. of hot and 1/2 lb. mild Italian sausage, but spicy vs. mild is up to you.


Top with romano cheese and fresh basil as desired.
