Wait, make that “Tortellini-Are-Little-Puffs-of-Heaven and Italian Sausage Stew.” Kind of a long name, though. I’ll work on it.
It’s been a very soup-y fall for me, for a couple of reasons. 1)Fall just seems to need soup. I don’t know what it is but for some reason, fall is a soup season. 2)Soup recipes make a lot and it’s great for pouring leftovers into a jar and taking it work a couple days for lunch. 3)I rarely made soup before last year because I was convinced I was a failure at it. I’m not nearly as nervous now. Clearly if I can do, any idiot can. But I repeat myself.
This is one of my new favorite stews because it has everything in it that’s yummy. Cheese tortellini. Italian sausage. Spinach. Tomatoes. Garlic. Parmigiano. I feel warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. I took some to work for lunch today and no joke, sat at my desk just slowly savoring the yumminess in a happified stupor. Happified wasn’t even a word before this soup came along.

Note: This makes an excellent meal with maybe a small salad beforehand, a good chunk of bread drizzled with olive oil and herbs and a slice of plum tart with a dollop of whipped cream for dessert.
