Kate's Spicy Sausage Tortellini Soup

"I have adapted this recipe after trying many different variations.The spicy clamato gives it lots of zip.Different vegetables work well. Just add your favorites. When I submitted this recipe I cut the ingredients in half as I usually make a huge batch and freeze half. "

    Very yummmmm. The grocery store didn't have Clamato so I used V-8 Spicy. Delicious! Other than that I followed to the letter!

    Very hearty soup. I used turkey sausage and fat-free low sodium chicken broth to lighten it up. Used an extra can of broth and the full quart of clamato juice and doubled the garlic. The frozen tortellini are a great idea and made this so easy! Next time I'll add zucchini.

    I loved this soup! It seperates the men from the boys. A true meal in one bowl. I couldn't find spicy Clamato juice so I used regular and added a few dashes of hot sauce.

    This soup is so good!!! I followed the recipe except I added 2 gloves of garlic. My DH loved this too. Froze some for a later date, can't wait till we have this again. A keeper!

    This soup is wonderful!! I left out the mushrooms and added a little extra broth. I made a big pot of it friday night to take up to the cottage for lunch on saturday. There were just five of us but not a spoonful was left. Everyone enjoyed it tremendously. Thanks for the recipe, Kate.
