This is a creamy, rich, delicious soup. Most of the people I cook for are very picky and this one turned out to be a crowd pleaser. Serve with fresh Italian bread on a cold winter's night! This soup would be great with either chicken or even meatballs instead of sausage; that just happened to be what I had on hand that particular day.

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir sausage and garlic until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Melt butter in a large stock pot over medium heat; whisk in flour, salt, and black pepper until smooth. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and red wine. Stir in tomatoes and onion soup mix. Simmer until thickened and flavors have blended, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in cooked sausage and basil. Continue to simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir tortellini into soup; simmer until tortellini are tender, about 15 minutes. Add half-and-half, stirring until soup is hot, about 5 minutes more. Serve in large bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I used a pound of ground turkey that I spiced up to fake pork sausage (rubbed sage, marjoram, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, basil red pepper flake, salt/pepper) and I cut back on the flour to a quarter cup only because I didn't want a thick soup. I also used a homemade onion soup mixture as I am sensitive to MSG and most pre-packaged onion soup mix has MSG. This was good. For us, it had a little too much cream. I would use more broth next time and cut the cream back considerably.


This soup is excellent. Mine came out extremely thick so I doubled the broth and still thought is was a little thick so I added about three more cups of broth. It was still rich and creamy. I also used milk instead of half and half. Very tasty. My family and I really enjoyed this. I will absolutely make this again.


This soup was amazingly delicious and deserves more than 5 stars!!! I used milk in place of the half and half, only 1/4 cup flour, dried basil instead of fresh (grocery store was out) and added a 1/2 tsp. oregano. Love this soup and will make it again. Thanks for the recipe!
