- 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups chopped cabbage
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes, undrained and cut up
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
- 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed French onion soup
- 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large saucepan, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the water, cabbage, tomatoes, broth and soup. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Stir in tortellini; cook 7-9 minutes longer or until pasta is tender. Sprinkle with cheese.
Freeze option: Before adding cheese, freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little broth, water or milk if necessary. Serve with cheese. Yield: 10 servings (2-1/2 quarts).
Reviews for Sausage Tortellini Soup
"Made this for dinner tonight. I didn't have a can of french onion soup so I used a can of consomme and sliced an onion and a carrot, and cooked those in a little butter before adding everything else. Next time I make it, I will make sure and have an extra can of broth, there wasn't a whole lot of liquid when it was done, or maybe that's just my own personal preference."
"Delicious and easy soup! I laid everything out and my dear husband made it for us for supper (he gets home earlier than I do). It had a wonderful rich flavor and the only thing we added was a side of garlic bread. Warmed our tummies with a hearty meal on a cold and damp night. We used a package of frozen cheese tortellini instead of the refrigerated verion, a can of the French onion soup starter sauce that is out now and a quart jar of our home-canned tomatoes. This recipe is a definite keeper--thanks for sharing it!"
"Loved it super easy to make and very tasty!"
"Super yummy! I made it a while ago, but I probably subbed beef consume for the french onion since I don't like onions."
"very good the whole family enjoyed. Used leftover Italian sausages! Definately a fantatic fall/winter soup!"
"We loved this soup -- child age 6 to adult!I am currently nursing so i substituted spinach for the cabbage and added the whole package of totellini (could only find a 20 oz package). It was fantastic like this as well! Have made this again and again!"
"My new favorite soup!! Simple, quick, and absolutely declicious!! I forgot to get the canned French onion soup for this, so instead I sauteed half an onion (sliced) in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until soft. I then added 2 cups of beef broth. I also used a 16 ounce package of frozen tortellini. My 5 year old and I could not stop raving about it, and my picky husband even ate two bowls! We are making it again this week, as we can't think of a better way to use the other half head of cabbage. Yummy!"
