This soup was amazingly delicious! I took a few tips from other reviewers and made a couple changes on my own (just because we like really flavorful food). Most of the time when I make a recipe my husband and I find it to be bland, so I'm always trying to "kick it up" a notch. We used 1 lb of sweet sausage and 1 lb of Hot! We only used 1 zucchini but added 2 cups of chopped Kale (or spinach would be good too). We doubled the basil and oregano and used 6 cloves of garlic (4 chopped and 2 grated) and 3 onions. We also used 6 cups of beef broth (4 cups low sodium 2 cups regular) and 1.5 cups of Sutter Home cabernet. I decided to skip the crock pot and do the whole thing in one pot! So, I fried the sausage, removed it to a plate, sautéed the onion & garlic, added the rest of the ingredients and returned the sausage to the pot and let it simmer an hour & 1/2 and it was PERFECT! We cooked the cheese tortellini separately and spooned the soup over it in our bowls and added the parmesan cheese! So good!!!! You just have to try it to believe it!
