Tortellini Sausage Soup

I mentioned when I posted a Ham and Potato Soup recipe that I LOVE soups and that still reigns true!! So, for this weeks recipe I will share with you one of my husband's favorite soups:
Tortellini Sausage Soup

 (This recipe was found on Pinterest and adapted from Lil' Luna with changes that I have made myself)

What you Need:
  • 4 Links of Italian Sausage (I like to buy the Hot because I think it adds more flavor without a too much spicy)
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 4-6 cups of chicken broth or stock (the tortellini at the end soaks up a lot of the juice so you may want to add more!)
  • 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes (I like to buy the one with sweet onion in it, again for a little more flavor.)
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce 
  • 1-1 1/2 cups chopped carrots
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 Tbsp parsley
  • 1 16 oz pkg cheese tortellini (frozen or refrigerated)

Make It:
  • Peel the skin off the sausage and slice sausage up. Brown in skillet. Then add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • Transfer sausage and garlic (may want to drain the skillet) to a stockpot and add broth/stock, tomatoes, tomato sauce, carrots and spices (stir it all up!). Bring to a boil, turn down and simmer, covered for 30 minutes.
  • Add tortellini and cook for 7-10 minutes longer.
  • Top with parmesan and enjoy!!
The tortellini can really soak up a lot of the sauce so you may want to cook the tortellini separate and then add before enjoying. Or, you may want to add additional broth/stock, tomatoes and tomato sauce! I made this soup this weekend for a potluck at work so I made a double batch and then just kept it on keep warm in my crockpot. It is such a yummy, hearty soup!
