  1. Really good!! Added extra Tomato paste. Extra garlic. Cook tortellini separate and in chicken broth. Add tortellini as you go, so leftovers aren’t overcooked, bloated and soggy. I’ll cut the sausage into smaller pieces next time.
  2. This soup has become a staple in our house. I actually don t chop an onion but buy a can of diced tomatoes with onion basil and oregano already mixed in. (Plus I m not a big onion fan).
  3. This is an absolutely easy and quick recipe. I make food at home during lunch and this quick and easy recipe almost never has enough even though I use a 19 oz bag of tortellini. This is simple easy to modify to your tastes and excellent.
  4. I make a lot of cannelini/meat soups but thought I'd try this one with the tortellini today and all I can say is OMG! What a refreshing break using the smoked sausage instead of a boring turkey/chicken add in and pasta instead of beans! Made as is except cooked the tortellini separately before adding to - Read more ...
  5. It is tasty and healthy. I found it was too thick so I added way more broth. Now is was a soup n0t stew. LINDA
  6. This is one of the best soups I've ever made and super easy. I skipped the tomato paste bc I wasn't going to buy a whole can for one spoonful. Didn't even miss it. I also threw everything into the crockpot and let it sit for 4 hours on high. Sausage needed a little more - Read more ...
  7. I was looking for a soup recipe that used sausage but no beans and this one looked like it would fit the bill. I followed the recipe but unfortunately I didn't have any tortellini but I still wanted to make this soup. I used 9 ounces of pasta instead and its still great. The flavours - Read more ...
  8. This soup is easy and sooo good on this cold, winter day! I used a 20 oz. package of tortellini which was awesome, but the soup might need a little more liquid (another small can of tomatos or more broth). I also used turkey sausage. All in all, good comfort soup with Italian bread.
  9. Added a teaspoon of Italian Seasoning and two shakes of Lawry's Seasoning. It was very good!
  10. So simple to make and very tasty. I've made this a few times. I skip the canned tomatos and use the entire can of tomato paste. Spinach is great but sometimes i switch it up with Kale. I do add a bit of italian seasoning. Works with any good sausage. I use the dried cheese - Read more ...
