    Italian Sausage & Tortellini Soup

    1 lb. sweet Italian sausage, casing removed
    1 med onion, chopped (about 2 c)
    2 large cloves garlic, minced
    2 t dried basil
    2 t dried oregano
    4 c beef broth
    1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes
    1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
    2 small zucchini, sliced (about 2 c)
    1 large carrot, sliced (about 1 c)
    1 medium red bell pepper, diced (about 1/2 c)
    1/2 c dry red wine
    8 to 10 oz. frozen cheese tortellini
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    freshly grated parmesan cheese

    In a heavy pot, brown sausage over medium-high heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes, crumbling meat with back of a spoon. Transfer cooked sausage to a bowl and set aside. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of drippings.

    Add onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add garlic, basil and oregano and sauté another 2 minutes. Add beef stock, scraping up any bits on bottom of pan. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, zucchini, carrot, pepper and wine. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

    Return sausage to pan. Add tortellini and cook until tender (see package instructions).

    Season with salt and pepper. Garnish each serving with parmesan cheese. Yields 6 to 8 servings.

    This soup is terrific! We make it every Christmas Eve, and it is a winter favorite.

      I love to cooking, eating, anything and everything about it. So, this is my perfect forum. Hello Everyone, I am new to the forums and using forums in general so if I do something stupid when trying to post something I apologies in advance.

      I am a nineteen University student majoring in Political Science and minoring in religious studies. I watched Paranormal State since it premiered and I have all the dvd's, this show really got me interested in thinking about the paranormal and religion. I never had paranormal experiences as a child but have always believed in the paranormal and I have had some experiences in the past few years since my friend moved into a haunted house.

      I am looking forward to meeting new people and learning from everyone here.

      Extra fun fact time: I am one of the taller women in my immediate family, but I'm only 5'5’’. I was really tall as a little kid and grew really fast then just... stopped haha. My favorite Crypto zoology creatures have to be... fairies, and the Jersey Devil. I am very open to learning about different religions/spiritual practices.
