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
