I threw this together for a Saturday Bible Study, gleaning different ingredients from recipes that looked good, and used what I had on hand.

How to Make Saturday Sausage Tortellini Soup


  1. In a large soup pot, cook sausage in 1 Tbsp of olive oil until no longer pink. Drain well in a colander.
  2. In the same pot, saute the onion & garlic over medium heat until the onion is translucent. (Add another Tbsp of olive oil if needed)
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients, except the tortellini.
  4. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat to low & simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Add in the tortellini and cook another 15 mins, or until pasta is tender.
  6. Serve with Parmesan cheese on top, if using. Also delicious with a side salad & a hearty crusty bread with butter.
