Souper Sunday - It. Sausauge Soup w/ Tortellini

Souper Sunday
Here is an easy one from my friend, Michelle. Thanks, Michelle!

Italian Sausage Soup w/ Tortellini

1 lb. sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
1 c chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 c sliced carrots
½ tablespoon basil
½ tsp oregano
5 c beef broth
½ c water
½ c red wine
4 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded & chopped (I used 1 can stewed tomatoes)
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1½ c chopped zucchini
8 oz. tortellini, cooked
3 tablespoons parsley

1. In a Dutch oven, brown sausage. Remove and drain.
2. Sauté onions & garlic in sausage drippings. Stir in beef broth, water, wine, tomatoes, carrots, basil, oregano, tomato sauce, sausage. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.

2. Stir in zucchini and parsley. Simmer covered for 30 minutes. Add tortellini during the last 10 minutes. Sprinkle w/ Parmesan cheese on top of each serving.

Note - I would almost add another can of broth as I don't think
the recipe makes enough sauce.
