"This is a creamy, rich, delicious soup. Most of the people I cook for are very picky and this one turned out to be a crowd pleaser. Serve with fresh Italian bread on a cold winter's night! This soup would be great with either chicken or even meatballs instead of sausage; that just happened to be what I had on hand that particular day." — Kathy's Kitchen

sweet Italian pork sausage links, casings removed
ground black pepper
1 (28 ounce) can
1 (1 ounce) package
dry onion soup mix
1 (.75 ounce) packet
fresh basil leaves, torn
2 (9 ounce) packages
frozen tri-color cheese tortellini
grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
I used a pound of ground turkey that I spiced up to fake pork sausage (rubbed sage, marjoram, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, basil red pepper flake, salt/pepper) and I cut back on the flour to a quarter cup only because I didn't want a thick soup. I also used a homemade onion soup mixture as I am sensitive to MSG and most pre-packaged onion soup mix has MSG. This was good. For us, it had a little too much cream. I would use more broth next time and cut the cream back considerably.
Nasty! Followed it to a T and I see no way of salvaging it!!! Waste of time and money!!! Nasty Nasty Nasty!
This soup is excellent. Mine came out extremely thick so I doubled the broth and still thought is was a little thick so I added about three more cups of broth. It was still rich and creamy. I also used milk instead of half and half. Very tasty. My family and I really enjoyed this. I will absolutely make this again.
This soup was amazingly delicious and deserves more than 5 stars!!! I used milk in place of the half and half, only 1/4 cup flour, dried basil instead of fresh (grocery store was out) and added a 1/2 tsp. oregano. Love this soup and will make it again. Thanks for the recipe!
We really loved this. Only added 1/2 cup of the flour but added a handful or parm at the end to the soup. Also threw in the left over stock from the box, probably 1/2 cup. I also added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and 1/2 tsp oregano. Will definitely make this again!
This is so delicious! The only change I would make is instead of making it as a soup, I'd pour it over tortellini (more like a sauce) instead of adding the tortellini to the soup. As a soup, it is very thick and quite rich. But it really was delicious. Will definitely make it again.
This soup is definitely a winner.. As with other reviewers, i too used a bit more broth ( 48 oz ). I also used red cooking wine because the spirits store was closed. The only other change i made was with the half/half. I used 1 cup of half/half and a cup of 2% milk. Thanks so much for such a delicious recipe.
Dee-lish! I, like just about everyone else, put in just a 1/4 cup of flour, and made my own little meatballs, instead of italian sausage. Fantastic!
