I put this together to please a zucchini lover in my family , everyone loved this dish served with salad and hot garlic bread , even our picky eaters. I used a precooked chicken sausage which saves time also and satisfied our folks who do not eat pork.

How to Make Zucchini Sausage Tortellini Soup


  1. In a large soup pot or large Dutch oven, place olive oil over medium high heat and once hot, add sausage meat. Break up meat while it cooks.
  2. Once the meat has browned, add onion, celery, carrots and bell pepper and sauté for four minutes.
  3. Move the vegetables to the sides and lower heat to medium. Add garlic, pepper flakes and tomato paste to center and cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes, zucchini, salt, pepper, broth, Parmesan cheese and Parmesan rinds along with fresh basil and fresh oregano and stir to combine.

    Bring to a medium simmer and cook just long enough until the vegetables are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Add frozen Tortellini and simmer for 5 mins , stir carefully so as to not break up tortellini.

    Remove from heat and remove and discard the Parmesan rinds.

    Serve immediately with additional Parmesan cheese and hot garlic bread on the side.
