Tortellini Soup

This is so good and one of my favorite soups!! It is perfect for a fall day or a chilly night. I got this recipe from Adrienne and Taste the Joy and it is always a hit and super easy! Pair it up with some rolls or muffins and you can't go wrong!!


1 lb. ground spicy turkey sausage (or regular turkey sausage is great too)
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
6 cup beef broth
1 8oz. can tomato sauce
8-16 oz. package cheese tortellini (I recommend and use the fresh pasta from the refrigerated section, it is the best!!)
1 16 oz. can chopped tomatoes, drained
1 zucchini, peeled and grated
1 carrot, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano

1. Ok ready, super easy!! Brown the sausage in a large soup pot. When cooked add the onion, garlic, carrot, green pepper and saute. Add all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the tortellini and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir every so often.
2. Add the tortellini and cook 7-9 minutes until done. (If you add it with everything else they will over cook and they can be mussy or fall apart, not good :) When the pasta is done, dish up and dig in!

* Rolls are super good with this, perfect for dunking and sopping up soup. Make up a batch earlier in the day so when the soup is ready, so is everything else!
* Muffins are really great too! Cranberry or apple would be delicious and they have fat free mixes in the baking isle that are really good and I use them finish off a dinner.
