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.

This was excellent, I added 3/4 c. Wine and didn't have peppers. I made this twice and the second time without the pasta, which I actually preferred. This will be a repeat for sure. I especially love adding a handful of chopped fresh baby spinach at the end for more color. Thanks for sharing.

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.

A lovely soup to enjoy just as the weather is turning cooler. I made this exactly as posted, using one fresh plum tomato and a 14.5 oz. can of fire-roasted tomatoes. I used tri-colored cheese tortellini. Even thought there is a lot of liquid added to this soup, it is very hearty and thick. We will definitely be enjoying this soup again! Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

Very tasty soup - especially on a cold and windy evening. I didn't have the zucchini so I skipped it. I used organic 3-cheese mini-ravioli which was just right. Quick and easy to make anytime. Thanks for posting Bayhill :) Made for your FOOTBALL POOL Week #13 win, December 2010!

Really good!! I make this soup all the time. Modify it a bit (add beans and small shell pasta) and it makes a great minestrone

Pretty good. I made this last night and made some minor modifications. I'm training for a marathon so i wanted it to be healthier because i'm in marathon training so i made it with turkey italian sausage, add red pepper flakes to the sausage, and added a couple of bay leaves other than that it. The only minor thing i would change is add a little more water. The pasta soaked up a lot of water and it was just a tad dry otherwise a very satisfying soup.

Another fabulous recipe from Paula Deen Magazine (Quick and Easy Meals Special Collector's Issue 2008) To cut the fat a little I substituted smoked turkey kielbasa for the italian sausage. Did everything else as directed and it was wonderful!
