Bake Time: 20-30 min
1 lb. Italian sausage (I like the Turkey Store's Hot Turkey Sausage)
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 cups chopped, tomatoes (I like Italian style stewed tomatoes)
1 cup shredded or thinly sliced carrots
1½ cup zuchini
2 garlic cloves, sliced
32 oz chicken broth
½ tsp basil
½ tsp oregano
8 oz can tomato sauce (I usually don't include this if I use the stewed tomatoes)
2 cups tortellini (I like TJ's versions)
Grated parmesan cheese for garnish
Cook sausage, then add vegetables, spices and chicken broth. Simmer for 20 - 30 min. Add tortellini for last 5 minutes. Serve w/ grated parmesan cheese.
