Italian Sausage & Cheese Tortellini Soup

Italian Sausage & Cheese Tortellini Soup

 

1-lb. Italian sausage
1 c. chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 large zucchini
1 large carrot
1 c. mushrooms
6 c. beef broth
28-oz. canned crushed tomatoes
14.5-oz. canned, diced Italian herb tomatoes
2 tsp. basil
2 tsp. oregano
9-oz. fresh cheese tortellini
Salt & pepper to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Brown the sausage in a large soup pan until thoroughly cooked. Drain. Remove from pan. Chop the onion, garlic, zucchini, carrot and mushrooms into small pieces. Sauté the vegetables, until slightly soft, in the same pan used to cook the sausage. Add the sausage to the vegetables. Add beef broth, tomatoes, basil and oregano. Simmer until the vegetables are tender (about 40 minutes). (The soup can be prepared to this point and kept refrigerated for 2 days. Bring mixture back to a simmer before continuing). Add tortellini to simmering soup and cook until tender (about 8 minutes). Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Top with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

  • Descrumptious!!!

  • I had to make up a word to describe this wonderful, flavorful soup! I made it for an indoor rainy day potluck picnic and several of my friends raved & wanted the recipe. A great Winter warmup, stick-to-the-ribs recipe. I used hot New York style sausage & it spiced it up quite nice.

  • One of the BEST!!

  • Our neighbor brought this over after a very sad occasion in our lives. After six weeks of delicious food brought to us with love, this soup was one I remembered most. Comforting, nourishing, delicious. I asked for the recipe and now make it all the time for my kids. It never fails to please!

  • It is so-o-o-o-o good. I made it for the first time and froze two containers for another time. We enjoyed another meal of the soup, this evening. It actually gets even better after it's been frozen! The Italian sausage is so tasty in the soup, as are the cheese tortellinis, and the other ingredients all combine to make it one of the best soups I have ever made!
