This was a comforting soup with some zing! For the pot of soup I used 1/2 pound each of sweet sausage and hot sausage. Couldn't find refrigerated tortellini in a 20 oz package size so substituted dried tortellini, about 1-1/2 cups. I also thinned the soup with more chicken broth at the end of cooking the pasta. Leftovers microwaved well the next day, too. Yummm!
