I think this is from Bon Appetit four or five years ago. Warm and comforting...and hearty. A meal in itself with some good bread.

We enjoyed this hearty soup. I used organic kale from the coop. I was unsure if DH would like the kale but he did and I am greatful for that. A new green as opposed to my normal of spinach or chard can now be used. I made the full recipe and we had it for dinner with lots left over. I froze some sans the tortellini and had some for lunch the next day. This is not a heavy soup and I loved that. I usually make a super heavy duty veggie soup but really enjoyed the lightness of this soup. In spite of it's lightness it was quite filling. I did make the tortellini seperate and added some to our bowls b efore serving that way I could freeze it seperate and it would not get soggy in the soup for the reheat. Delcious and a keeper. I cannot wait to make this during the summer months with the kale from the garden. Made for AUS/NZ Swap Feb12

This is a hearty soup with a nice flavor and spice. I actually left out the tortellini because this makes soooo much soup, and I dislike soggy pasta in my soup, so instead I cooked the totellini separeately and served the soup over the pasta. Delicious!

This was a good soup! I used swiss chard, and it was really yummy in it. I used what I had on hand, so a little less sausage, and twice the beans and tortellini. The balance was just right. The lighter amount of the red pepper does make this a little spicy. The fennel blends into it and is not really distinguishable. A squeeze of lemon over it was a nice touch. I think tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes would be a great addition. Thanks, BarbryT!
