Measure out ingredients, prepare veggies, remove casings from sausage links, drain and rinse beans. Set aside.
Add olive oil to heated stockpot then add onions and carrots. Saute for 5 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking another 3 minutes. Add sage, basil, oregano and sausage. Crumble sausage as it cooks, approximately 7-10 minutes.
Add diced tomatoes, salt, pepper, tomato paste, bouillon cubes, bay leaf and 6 cups of water. Simmer over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes.
Add beans and tortellini (carefully) along with last cup of water if needed/desired. When it begins to simmer again, remove bay leaf, add spinach and cook 10 minutes more or until tortellini is done and spinach wilted. Serve and top with Parmesan or mozzarella cheese...or both!
