Savory Italian Stew Recipe

Publisher Photo
My niece shared this recipe with me, and whenever I’ve served it, I get requests for the recipe. The sausage, tortellini, tomatoes, zucchini and herbs make it different from typical stews featuring meat and potatoes. It’s a hearty one-dish meal that’s simple to prepare.
