Lovely full-bodied broth, with an excellent flavor. I made exactly as written and the only differences were I used dried basil and oregano, because they were not in season in my garden, and I used fresh parsley, which grows all year around. I used hot Italian sausage and did as another cook suggested, and sauteed the onions and sausage together. I did use 6 cloves of garlic, since we like garlic. I like this soup and it reminds me a lot, in flavor, of Rachel Ray's veggie stoup, which I make repeatedly. I cooked the tortellini separately and added them in five minutes before serving, topped with a generous grating of Parmesan cheese. Wonderful soup, just like most cooks said, and I hope everyone gives it a try.
