My love of soup is something I have passed on to my boys and I am so glad. You can get a lot of veggies in there!

One of their favorites is this sausage kale soup, so I was hopeful they would love this one too.

And when you eat it with a nice warm piece of french bread….well, need I say more?

Tomato Tortellini Soup Ingredients

What I love about this soup is how simple and easy it is to enjoy fresh veggies as comfort food.

True story, veggies in soup are magical.

While they frown at certain veggies on a plate, my kids will eat corn in corn chowder, squash in butternut squash soup and now spinach in this tortellini soup.

Mom win!
