There's nothing like a comforting bowl of soup when the weather starts to turn cool. Our weather has been pretty crazy for fall here in Southern California, but the cool nights are here.
Tonight was one of those "what do I have in the fridge?" kind of nights, so I came up with a new soup recipe, and it was delicious. I once again got "the look" when I took a picture of it, but hey, something this good, just begs to be shared!
Italian Sausage & Cheese Tortellini Soup
1 package mild Italian sausage links
1 24 oz package cheese tortellini (from Costco)
1 cup chopped onion
2 Tbsp minced garlic
8 cups chicken broth
1 can condensed tomato soup
1/2 can water
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 Tbsp basil
Heat a large skillet and add sausage links with 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, flip sausages and cook another 10 minutes. Remove from heat and slice links.
Heat soup pot and add two Tbsp olive oil. Saute onion until clear, add garlic and saute one minute. Add sausage, broth, soup, water and seasoning. Bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add tortellini and cook to package instructions.
Ladle into bowls, top with parmesan or mozzarella cheese and serve.
