Yum! Yum! Yum! Great recipe. I am making more broth so that I can easily complete the soup for future dinners. I have a lot of extra red wine to use up and don't drink it! (Migraines unfortunately!) I had a soup night party and served this along with two others, it was a huge hit! A couple of things I will adjust next time, I won't cook the tortellini in the soup but will likely do it in water and beef broth so it still has the flavor it would have cooked in the soup. I will keep the two separate and put them together for each bowl. When the tortellini sits in the soup it starts to swell and soften, absorbing too much broth over time, it was also hard to divvy out the sausage with the big tortellini getting in the way. Not great for leftovers or when you have a soup pot on the stove for seconds (and thirds). I also added extra veg because that is what I always do and may add even more variety next time. I added green beans and a yellow squash but plan to add some chard and maybe some mushrooms). I used fresh tomatoes as the recipe calls for, tomato paste and water instead of canned sauce (better flavor) a big spoonful of sun-dried tomatoes from a jar I keep in the fridge and some additional herbs - bay leaf and rosemary. I didn't have wine so asked my sis to pick up a bottle on her way over. The soup was pretty bland without it and I was shocked at how much richer and more complex it was from this small addition. My suggestion, don't leave the wine out!
