The best soup ever!! Unfortunately I'm the only one in my family who really loves this recipe. My husband eats it because that's what's for dinner but he doesn't love it. And my kids will eat a couple bites of a tortellini but that's it. Good think I like it enough to eat all the leftovers!
Brown 1 lb. of Italian sausage with the casings removed. Saute 1 chopped onion and 2 large garlic cloves. Combine above.
Add 2 cans of chicken or beef broth
1 oz can of tomato soup
1 diced green pepper
1 sliced carrot
3/4 lb can chopped tomatoes
2 Tb basil
1 tsp oregano
Simmer 40 minutes. Add 8 oz cheese tortellini 5 minutes before serving. Best when soup is made ahead. Add tortellini last.
**We aren't big fans of chunks of tomatoes so here's what I use in mine:
Jimmy Dean Italian sausage
1 can tomato soup
1 can tomato sauce
green pepper, red pepper, carrot
I probably doubled the amount of tortellini
***I also make a double batch of this. It freezes well if you make it to the point of adding the tortellini. Then all you have to do is thaw is, get it simmering, and add the tortellini.
