“My family loves this hearty soup that can be served anytime throughout the year. It’s great to take to work the next day for lunch.”


6 (3.5 ounce) links sweet Italian sausage, casings removed

1 small onion, diced

48 oz. carton Swanson’s chicken broth

1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, cut up

1/2 cup diced carrots

1 medium zucchini, diced

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 (9 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini


In a large pot over medium high heat, saute the sausage and onion for 5 minutes, or until browned and crumbly. Add broth, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, Parmesan cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in tortellini. Simmer 10 more minutes.
