Today I’m sharing one of my husbands favorite soups: Tortellini sausage soup. This recipe comes from my Aunt Jane’s ‘Favorites’ cook book and it’s perfect on a cold winter day! I first had this soup a few years back at our annual gingerbread contest and have remembered it ever since. I made a few adjustments to the recipe and love how it turned out!
PS- Is anyone else freezing?! I’m going into cold shock with this Ohio weather. Apparently this isn’t even “cold” yet. I think I will make soup every night for dinner next six months… then top it off with some hot apple cider. ;) Get ready for lots of soup recipes. ;)
1/4 tsp white pepper (can substitute with black pepper)
1 cup water
1 26 oz can beef broth
1/2 cup white wine or apple juice
2 cups sliced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 TB parsley, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
12 ounces cheese tortellini (refrigerated or frozen)
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pan, brown sausage over medium heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Remove extra fat and add chopped onion. Cook for 2 minutes then add in the garlic and cook until tender. Next add water, broth, wine, carrots, tomatoes, basil, oregano, celery, parsley and green pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add tortellini 5 to 10 minutes before serving and cook until tender. Top with fresh Parmesan cheese.
