Crumble sausage into a Dutch oven; add onion. Cook and Stir over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute longer. stir in the broth, water and tomatoes. If you would like to add any other vegetables, this is when you would. Bring broth to a boil on slow/medium heat and make sure added vegetables are tender, if any. Add tortellini; return to a boil. Cook for 5-8 minutes or until almost tender, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; add the spinach. Cook 2-3 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted and tortellini are tender.
