Tortellini soup

Honestly, I'm only posting about this soup because I want to link up to my sister's linky party.  :-)  

But...I made yummy soup last night!  I haven't felt great this week.  I was getting together with friends to watch a football game and thought some soup loaded with veggies might help me feel better.  It was SO good that I didn't even remember to take a picture until I was eating leftovers this morning.  It was veggie-filled enough to make me happy, but filling enough to make the men happy.

Tortellini Soup

Water - maybe 5 cups?
4 large carrots, peeled and sliced
1 can diced tomatoes with garlic
1 red bell pepper, diced in larger pieces
1 medium yellow onion, diced
Basil - maybe 1/2 Tbsp
Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
Black pepper - three dashes
1.25 lbs. mild Italian sausage (uncooked, ground, not links)

Cook all of that, uncovered, until the sausage looks done.

Then add a package of frozen spinach (10 oz.?) and simmer until the carrots are done, but not mushy.

4 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 package frozen cheese tortellini

Bring back to boiling, boil 3-4 minutes until tortellini are the consistency you want, hopefully not mushy.

Add salt to taste; serve topped with Parmesan cheese.
