I used to make LOADS of ratatoulli when I had my vegetable garden. It was always so tasty and chunk full of fresh vegetables, eggplant, zucchini, green peppers and tomatoes from my garden. I created this recipe with that vegetable dish in mind and added sweet Italian sausage and cheese tortellini. The result is a hearty chunky soup that is perfect for these cold winter nights.
