Tortellini Sausage Soup

  • 3 links Italian sausage
  • 4 cloves pressed garlic
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 C water
  • 2 cans (14.5oz.) chicken broth
  • 1/2 C apple cider
  • 1 can (14.5oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1 C sliced carrots
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated
  • 8-10 oz. package cheese tortellini (fresh, frozen or dried)
  • 2 Tbsp. dried parsley

If you're using link sausage, remove the casings and crumble into a large soup pot.

Begin cooking sausage over medium heat, stirring frequently. If your sausage is pretty fatty, you'll want to drain it when it's about halfway cooked. Meanwhile, chop onions and garlic and add to the sausage. Continue cooking until onions are translucent and your sausage is cooked.

Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, juice, water, chicken broth, carrots, oregano, and basil. Cover and simmer for 1/2 hour. Add parsley and zucchini and simmer for another 15 minutes or so.

Add the tortellini and cook until tender, and then serve with bread and freshly-grated Parmesan.
