Italian Sausage & Tortellini Soup

Submitted by: GRASSHOPPAHHH

Introduction

I lightened up a recipe from mom by using chicken sausage - not Emeril's, but an organic type I found - and chicken broth instead of beef. I lightened up a recipe from mom by using chicken sausage - not Emeril's, but an organic type I found - and chicken broth instead of beef.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 package (approx 1 lb) Italian style chicken or turkey sausage
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    500 mL red wine (2/3 bottle)
    approx. 50 oz. low sodium chicken broth
    one 16 oz can tomato sauce
    1-2 cups fresh spinach
    2 small zucchini, sliced thin
    1 package refrigerated or frozen tortellini

Directions

Brown sausage with chopped onion in soup pot, add garlic when onion is translucent.
Stir in red wine and chicken broth and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in tomato sauce (diced tomatoes may also be used).
Once all liquids are boiling, add zucchini, tortellini and spinach. Cook for 2-3 minutes per directions on tortellini. I serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top and thin sliced garlic bread. YUM. Makes about 6 large bowls' worth.
