Ingredients:  
5-6 links of Italian sausage or you can use a pound of bite-sized meatballs
1 coarsely chopped, medium onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups low or no sodium beef broth
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 15 oz. can of stewed tomatoes
1 cup sliced carrots
1/2 tsp each of basil and oregano
8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 cup sliced zucchini
3 T fresh parsley
1 medium yellow pepper
1 T balsamic vinegar
8 oz fresh or frozen tortellini
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Directions:
1. Remove sausage from casing and crumble into bite-sized pieces. Brown sausage, add onion and garlic. Drain fat. Add wine, tomatoes, broth, carrots, basil, oregano and tomato sauce. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

2. Stir in zucchini, parsley, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Cover and simmer 20-25 minutes. Add tortellini and cook according to directions on the package of tortellini. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle individual servings with cheese.

Serve with crusty rolls or sandwiches.


The easiest way to get the casing off of sausage is to freeze the links. Then hold each link under running water, slit the casing with a sharp knife and peel the casing off of the sausage. I then cook the sausages over low heat to get them to thaw and start to cook enough that I can crumble up the sausage for the soup.

This is a great recipe to feed a crowd. Most people like the combination of sausage and pasta, and it is hearty enough that you can serve the soup, rolls, cheese slices, good beer and you have a party!
