  • Cook and stir onion and garlic in the same skillet until browned, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Combine sausage, onion mixture, beef broth, diced tomatoes, black pepper, Italian seasoning, and salt in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover pot, and simmer until soup flavors blend, about 1 hour.

  • Bring soup to a boil, add tortellini, and cook until tortellini are cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

We prefer cheese-garlic pork sausage with less fat.

This recipe is the best! I used ground sausage and made it into meatballs to make it easier for my MIL and FIL to eat. It turned out amazing this way. My husband loved it as well! I will be making this again as I am adding it to our meal rotation. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Mr. LTH unsolicited said "Tell them Mr. LTH loves this." There you go... I used ground beef in place of sausage because I just don't care for sausage. To make up for some of the lost seasoning I used Italian diced tomatoes. To add nutrients I added shredded carrots with the browning beef/onions/garlic and chopped fresh spinach when I added the tortellini. It was a tad on the bland side for ME so I added some seasoned salt to my bowl and that nailed it for me. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

Excellent! Used ground pork and rolled into mini meatballs. Also needed to add another 32 oz. carton of broth after I cooked the tortellini, but I used dry tortellini. Fresh tort. may not have required the extra broth. Finally, I stirred in spinach before serving and topped with fresh grated Parmesan . Thumbs up from both kids and husband. FYI- the pepper does add some heat. If you have kids, you may want to start with 1/2 tsp and add more to taste. We enjoyed the full tsp. Very good! Read More

My husband and I thought this was really very tasty and very satisfying on a cold winter night. Easy to make, too. The only change I'd make, and that's just because there are only two of us, is that I'd cook the tortellini separately and add it directly to the bowls. By the time I put the leftovers away, the remaining pasta had soaked up all of the broth. I used mild Italian sausage in this, and we both really enjoyed our dinner. Read More

Simple and hearty. I used a regular Italian sausage and removed the casing to improve the texture and made it easy to get a little meat with each Tortellini. I added stewed tomatoes and some carrots for a little depth. I also put in a small rind of Parmigiana Reggiano and served with some of it grated as well. Really rich tasting and delicious with the pasta. I might like to try a Romano ( more salty and less nutty) next time for a change of pace. Also added a little crushed red pepper and a dash hot paprika to give it little heat that really hit the mark at the back of your throat without burning your mouth. I used a plain sausage, but it tasted a little plain in a really flavorful soup. I should have seasoned the sausage more while browning. Or, I may try an onion-garlic or cheese-garlic sausage as suggested. Read More

My husband gave this a rating of five stars which he rarely does which is really saying something. He thought it was very good. I cut the sausage first before cooking just to speed up the cooking time. Read More

Fabulous! I'm not a big soup eater bit this was hearty and very filling. My whole family loved it. I will definitely keep and remake this recipe often. It was also very easy. I used cheese and spinach tortellini and sweet Italian sausage I can't imagine it tasting any better than it did. #MyAllrecipes #AllrecipesAllstars Read More
