How to Make Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute the Italian sausage in heavy Dutch oven or your favorite soup pot over medium-high heat until cooked through, crumbling with back of spoon, about 10 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer sausage to large bowl. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings from Dutch oven or pot.
  2. Add onion and garlic to Dutch oven and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Return sausage to Dutch oven or pot.
  3. Add stock, tomatoes, tomato sauce, zucchini, carrot, bell pepper, wine, basil and oregano. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 40 minutes. (Can be prepared 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
  4. Bring to simmer before continuing.) Add tortellini to soup and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Season soup to taste with sea salt and cracked pepper. Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
