Tortellini Sausage Soup

Roberta Isaacson


I usually keep frozen tortellini in my freezer for soups or salads - this soup goes together quickly.

1 Hr 20 Min


1 Hr 20 Min


Stove Top


3 links italian sausage
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 onion diced
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup apple cider
1 - 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 - 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 cup chopped carrots
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 medium zucchini grated
2 tablespoons dried parsley
8 - 10 ounce package refrigerated or frozen cheese tortellini

Directions Step-By-Step

Remove the casings from the italian sausage. In a large pot cook the sausage over medium heat until it starts to brown using a wooden spoon to crumble as it cooks.
Add the chopped onion and garlic. Continue cooking until the onions are translucent and the sausage is cook through. Drain any excess grease if needed.
Stir in the chicken broth, apple cider, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, carrots, oregano and basil. Bring the soup to a simmer, cover and continue to simmer for 30 minutes.
Stir in zucchini and parsley and simmer for 10 - 12 minutes. Add the tortellini and cook until tender.(I only cook the tortellini for 4 - 5 minutes so it doesn't fall apart).
Serve immediately with fresh grated parmesan.
