Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup

READY IN: 2hrs
Top Review by Kate in Ontario

Wonderful full bodied soup! I followed recipe exactly except substituted 2 stalks of celery for the zucchini(family preference). Very similar to my version recipe # 20486 except I use chicken broth and spicy clamato juice instead of the beef broth and wine.. I used extra lean Itaian spicy turkey sausage to keep the fat content down. My sons gave it 5 1/2 stars. Will be enjoying this recipe many more times. Thanks NurseDi for another great recipe!
