1 c. water
14-oz can diced tomatoes
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 c. carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. basil leaves
1/2 tsp. oregano leaves
1 1/2 c. zucchini, sliced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
8 oz. cheese tortellini
Grated Parmesan cheese, for topping

Brown sausage with onion and garlic. Drain fat. Add remaining ingredients except tortellini and cheese. Bring to a boil. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Add tortellini and cook just until pasta is done (it will float to the top). Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Personal Notes:
We like the spicy sausage! It is flavorful enough that you can use less, or you can use the full pound and double the other ingredients.
