  1. Brown sausage in pot; drain off fat. Add onions and saute until tender. Add carrots, celery, beef broth, red wine, tomatoes, ketchup, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Skim away the fat from the soup.
  2. Stir in the zucchini, tortellini, red bell pepper, and parsley. (If you use fresh tortellini, cook them according to package directions.) Simmer, covered, for about 25-30 minutes or till the tortellini are tender. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese right before serving.

This soup is a winner. I made it for a church Soup Supper and everyone raved about it. The ketchup is the "secret ingredient" that gives it some real punch and flavor. Rich and delicious, wit...

This soup turned out amazing! I used mild Italian sausage with casings removed. Based on some other comments I modified slightly. I used 8 cups of beef broth and only 1/2 cup of ketchup. I a...
