How to Make Tortellini Soup


  1. If you use sausage that came in a casing, remove.
  2. In a 5 quart dutch oven, brown the sausage. Remove the sausage, but keep about 1 tablespoon of the drippings in the dutch oven.
  3. Saute the onions & garlic in the sausage drippings in the dutch oven until the onions are tender.
  4. Add beef broth, water/wine, tomatoes, carrots, basil, oregano, tomato sauce & sausage.

    Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes (savor the aroma!!)
  5. Stir in zucchini, tortellini, parsley, & green pepper.

    Cover and simmer for an additional 35-40 minutes or until the tortellini are tender.
  6. When serving, sprinkle with the grated parmesan cheese, if desired. (I skip this!)

    Serve with yummy warm crusty bread or bread sticks!
