"This is a wonderfully hearty soup that brings raves when you serve it! Add some crusty French or Italian bread and a tossed green salad and that's all you will need! Serve with grated Parmesan cheese."

dry red wine
fresh tortellini pasta
1 1/2 cups
green bell peppers, seeded and cubed
chopped fresh parsley
This has to be one of the best soups I've ever made. It has a great flavour, but I did find a pound of sausage to be too much. I will cut the meat down at least by half. I used fairly spicy italian sausage. I omitted the peppers and didn't have parmesan cheese. My husband has already asked for it again!
The tortellini was weird, my boyfriend took it out when he ate the soup. The soup was very oily and despite the vegetables, it felt so unhealthy.
OH MY GOSH! This is the BEST soup! We all loved it, even the kids.... I made a couple of modifications, because of what I had on hand... instead of sausage, I used ground beef... instead of beef broth I used chicken... and omitted the red wine and instead added a tablespoon or so of Worchestershire sauce. YUMMY STUFF!
This was fantastic! The only thing I changed was using added beef broth for the water and only using a dash of wine. My husband loved it and is taking the leftovers (I halved the recipe)for lunch tomorrow. I'm jealous. My toddler picked the tortellini and sausage out. Next time I make it, I'll try fresh tortellini rather than frozen. Thanks for a yummy dinner!
This soup has a wonderful flavor and is very satisfying. I'm impressed with the simplicity of the ingredients and preparation. Like others, I substituted paste for sauce and then made a few other modifications, like two small potatoes instead of zucchini, omitting the peppers and parsely, substituting 2 cups of rotini for the tortellini, and using 28 oz. of stewed tomatoes. Worked great! A very versatile recipe, Donna. Nice job.
WOW, WOW, WOW Never before has a recipe been so complete and adjustable at the same time!! This was great because you can follow the recipe or you can tweek it to fit your pantry/fridge and still get great results everytime!! I added celery and 1 red bell and 1 green instead of 2 greens. I used a bit of Prego chunky garden combo sauce and a can of tomato paste in place of the tomatoe sauce and added a bit more spice since I used italian turkey rather then pork and the results were amazing. I ate it for breakfast and dinner the next day. I just couldn't get enough!!! Many Thanks!!!
I thought this was a fabulous way to make Tortellini soup. I left out the bell peppers (Contadina Stewed Tomatoes already had some in their cans and its not overpowering either) and swapped the Tomato sauce for Tomato Paste. However, do not use too much. In my opinion, I prefer the beef broth. Add to much sauce/paste and it thickens into a pasta sauce, which is great too, but its not how I vision tortellini soup so i think keeping to the broth is best with all the additions! Thanks Donna. It tasted super delicious on the very first try!!!!!!!!!!! Now that's what I call a really good recipe!
Excellent Soup, Very Hearty
I used hot Italian sausage and tomato paste instead of tomato sauce. My family loved it.
