Tortellini Soup with Sausage

Recipe Information
Hardy, stick to the ribs soup



  • 1 lb (.5 kg). Italian sweet sausage
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced (I like making larger pieces)
  • 1 zucchini, sliced in larger pieces - about 1 inch thick
  • 2 10-3/4 oz (301 grm). cans condensed tomato soup (see note below)
  • 3 cups (700 ml) water
  • 2 cups (475 ml) cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried basil
  • 1/3 tsp (2 ml) dried oregano
  • Remove sausage from casing, crumble and cook like ground beef.
  • Drain.
  • Mix cooked sausage with remaining ingredients in large saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 45-60 minutes.
  • You might not need all this time. Keep checking the tortellini, you don t want it to be mushy.
  • **This recipe originally called for 1 can of zesty tomato soup and 1 can of reg tom soup. I could not find the zesty so I use the 2 regular and add some Bermuda Hot Pepper Sauce.
