    Bayhill's Note:

    This is a delicious soup loaded with vegetables and tortellini filled with cheese and basil. You can increase the spiciness of the soup by using hot Italian sausage and adding some red pepper flakes.

      What a wonderful and comforting soup! I used sweet Italian turkey sausage and wheat tortellini. Loved the rich flavorful broth and all those veggies. Hearty and delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      The broth in this is amazing. I added a red pepper and cooked it in the crockpot. I was gonna take the suggestion of another review and just put regular small pasta shells in it. I wish I had! My daughter and I didn't enjoy the tortellini in it. Everything else was good.

      Delicious and hearty! We enjoyed this soup and its a great way to use up carrots and zucchini. The only change I made was to use hot Italian sausage. Loved the addition of the tortellini. Made for the Football Pool tag game.
