Tortellini Soup

Pin It

This amazing soup is in my top 3 favorite soups and my entire family loves it! I usually grate most of the zucchini and leave just a few chunks to hide it from my kids. They have no idea! So here you go friends, enjoy!


1 lb. Italian sausage (mild)
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 small onion, diced
5 C chicken broth approx. (I use about 1 1/2 of the 32 oz cartons) Use more if it is too thick.
1/2 c. apple cider
1 can chopped, stewed tomatoes (16 oz.)
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
1 cup sliced carrots
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1 tsp dried oregano
2 medium zucchini, grated or sliced
1 8-10 oz package cheese tortellini (I like the frozen kind-and put it in frozen)
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley
Salt to taste
Parmesan cheese (for garnish-to taste)

Brown sausage, garlic and onion in large soup pot. Add remaining ingredients, except zucchini, tortellini and parsley. Simmer 30 minutes. Stir in last three ingredients, simmer another 30 minutes. Add more broth if too thick and salt if needed. Serve with fresh grated parmesan.
