This soup is such a family treasure, both my daughters asked for the recipe when they moved out on their own. I cook the tortellini separately, but you can let it plump up in the soup broth, too. —Cynthia Krakowiak, Langhorne, Pennsylvania

"Delicious soup...easy to make! I added a chopped onion to the pot, and I sauteed the sausage instead of dropping bits into the soup. I will definitely make this again. Thank you Cynthia!"
