This was a good and easy dish to prepare on a cold day. The only thing is if u try to keep it warm for any length of time I found that the tortellini got pretty mushy. It needs to be served as soon as tortellini is done. I tried to keep it warm as everyone came home at different times, but they were diff overdone.

I made this about a week ago, this is fantastic. The only change I made was I didn't add any green peppers. My kids don't like them. I will be making this again for sure, Thanks so much for posting!

This is the first recipe I tried on my family. I have to say it went over big. They all told me it was a keeper and that I have to keep practicing. (a family joke- meaning make it often). I since then tweeked it a bit. I use shell noodles, cut out the peppers (kids dont like them) and used canned garlic and basil chopped tomatos because its quicker (no chopping)

this was a HUGE hit! everyone absolutely loved it. i did everything to the T except i omitted the 2 cups of tomatoes and did 1 can of 14 1/2 oz diced tomatoes instead. i also omitted the bell pepper and zucchinni since i had none and just added an extra carrot. could only find 9 oz tortellini so i added a little bit of elbow macaroni pastas. i also used sweet italian sausage. was sooooooooooooo delicious!!! next time i'll add a little more broth. will go into my fav folder. thank you for sharing a delcious and filling recipe! A++++++!!!

This is suprisingly well-liked by kids...I think it's the tortellini. I made a double batch for the extended family, and it disappeared. Hey! There was supposed to be some leftover for my work lunch! I would like to suggest the cheddar quick bread as a side that compliments it well.

Can I give this 10 stars??? Oh My Gosh!!! This was scrumptious!!! I mixed hot and mild italian sausage, added a can of mushrooms, and my grocer has bags of frozen sliced red, green, and yellow peppers w/onions, and also bags of sliced zuccini and yellow squash mixed, which really saved time, so I was not standing there dicing, and slicing, and chopping!!! The blend of flavors was outstanding, as were the leftovers the next night!!! We will enjoy this often!! Thanks for sharing, Ratherbeswimmin'!!!!

This was so delicious and easy to make! I used hot Italian Sausage, about 30 oz. chopped canned whole tomatoes, 5 carrots and no zucchini since my grocery store was completely out. Next time I will add more broth or water while cooking, and cook the cheese tortellini a little less (they got a little soggy and are better firm). Still, it was excellent!

Everyone loved it!! I only had an 8oz bag of tortellini and it seemed to be the perfect amount. I added more broth (4 cans) to make sure it was still "soupy" (since the tortellini soaks up some of the broth). Very tasty! Looks like a long cold winter, I'm sure I'll be making it again.
