1 jar(s)classico spaghetti sauce (basil flavor) note here that any jar spaghetti sauce will do nicely
1polish kelbasa sausage round cut up into chunks
1 can(s)bean salad ( i use s&w which is a safeway brand because it doesn't have garbonzo beans which i dislike
1 pkgeither dry or fresh tortallini noodles . i use the cheese stuffed but the spinch stuffed is just as good.
1 can(s)beef broth
any veggieleftovers work good in this , pea's , corn, etc
How to Make Tortallini Soup
- Drain the bean salad first. Then add all ingredients but the noodles in a crock pot and let it slow cook for a couple of hours. If in a hurry you can make this on the stove but its more flavorful in a crock pot.
The Noodles should be added just before eating to save them from becoming soggy. I have also boiled them if dry tortallini in the beef broth and added them last.
- this makes several quarts of soup and should feed 4 nicely....I tweak this soup and add different types of sausage( garlic flavor, cheese, or turkey)
also add lots of veggies they all work great...Have fun!!
