Spicy and delicious! This is an excellent one dish meal that has always satisfied during the cold winter months. Tastes great on its own or with fresh hot bread and topped with Asiago cheese.

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the sausage, onion, and garlic. Cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly and lightly browned. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the red wine, beef broth, and 1 cup of water. Add tomato, carrots, tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in the zucchini, bell pepper, and parsley. Continue simmering for 45 minutes more. Pour in the remaining 1 cup of water. Increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Stir in the tortellini. Cook until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf before serving.

Happy to be the first reviewer to say mmmm, great soup! It smells wonderful and tastes even better! I didn't have carrots and am not crazy about them anyway, so I omitted them and tossed in a can of ceci beans to compensate. I used a mix of chicken and beef broth and included more broth rather than to add the one cup water called for. I wasn't sure I'd like the green pepper but it turned out to add a good, subtle flavor. The herb seasoning was just right. Hubs and I both enjoyed this nourishing, satisying and hearty soup. I served this with "Parmesan Herb Bread," also from this site.

I used link sausage and cooked in the broth before removing and thinly slicing. Used smoked mozzarella ravioli instead of tortellini. Not a fan of green peppers but added some thinly sliced mushrooms and fresh spinach.

This was delicious and my husband loved it! We used spicy sausage and knowing that my husband was eating lots of veggies was great!
