This is a great soup and will be added the rotation! I made this for the first time last night, but definitely will make again: per my husband’s request! I doubled the soup ingredients, and used a whole pack of mild turkey Italian sausage (with a dash of red pepper flakes cause my store didn’t have the hot Italian sausage). Instead of the fresh tomatoes, I used a can of petite diced tomatoes per batch, since fresh aren’t always available. I used low sodium beef stock (not beef broth), and it was seasoned very well without additional salt. I am tired of zucchini so I swapped it out with a 16 ounce bag of fresh kale, and let it simmer until the kale was done. My husband commented how great it smelled when he came home from work, and was at the pot with a spoon tasting almost immediately. Some of the reviews said the pasta soaked up all the broth, and we like a brothy soup. So instead of adding the tortellini to the pot, I put the frozen tortellini in the bottom of the serving bowls and ladled the hot soup over the cold pasta. After about 2 minutes, the pasta was perfect and the soup was cool enough to eat. Some fresh Parmesan and a little multigrain bread and a GREAT DINNER!! Just had the leftover today for lunch and I think the soup got better, if that was possible!! Thanks for sharing such a hearty, wonderful soup!
