Sausage and Tortellini Soup
- 1 lb bulk Italian sausage or sausage removed from the casings (I use turkey sausage when I can find it)
- 1 large green pepper, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
- 8 oz tortellini (you can use ref, frozen, or dried, whatever you prefer- I usually use the dried kind from Trader Joe's when I have it)
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large soup pot saute the green peppers, onions, and sausage until sausage is browned and vegetables are soft. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Add the tortellini and cook according to package time. Add the evaporated milk and simmer another 5 minutes stirring frequently. Top with yummy parmesan cheese!
Until next time, happy and healthy cooking!
