Default Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup

1 pound sweet Italian sausage or chorizo
sausage, casings removed
1 cup chopped onion
2 large garlic cloves, sliced
5 cups beef stock or canned broth
2 cups chopped tomatoes (about 3/4 pound)
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1 large zucchini, sliced
1 large carrot, thinly sliced
1 medium-sized green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons dried basil
2 tablespoons dried oregano


8 to 10 ounces purchased fresh cheese
tortellini
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Sauté Italian sausage in heavy Dutch oven
over medium-high heat until cooked through,
crumbling with back of spoon*, about 10
minutes. using slotted spoon, transfer
sausage to large bowl. Pour off all but 1
tablespoon drippings from Dutch oven. Add
onion and garlic to Dutch oven and sauté
until translucent, about 5 minutes. Return
sausage to Dutch oven. Add stock, tomatoes,
tomato sauce, zucchini, carrot, bell pepper,
wine, basil and oregano. Simmer until
vegetables are tender, about 40 minutes.
(Can be prepared 2 days ahead. Cover and
refrigerate. Bring to simmer before
continuing.)

Add tortellini to soup and cook until
tender, about 8 minutes. Season soup to
taste with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into
bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.

*NOTE* I often slice the sausage into thin rounds instead of crumbling.

I may just make this tonight, its chilly here & we are all under the weather! I hope leaving out the red wine wont alter it too much, I never cook with wine....for some odd reason.

There is not much of a difference without the wine. It's more a background flavor. I've been known to skip it if I don't have any in the house. I don't drink much red wines so I don't always have it available. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
