Tortelinni Soup

This soup is a definite crowd pleaser. Well, at least in my house it is! My husband requests this soup on a very frequent basis and I wouldn't be surprised if he asked for some on a hot summer day. (and I'm not gonna lie I would probably make it on a hot summer day cause it's that good!)

1 lb. sausage (we use jimmy deans hot sausage cause we like things a bit spicy in our house)
1 small onion diced
2 cloves minced garlic
5 cups beef broth
1 cup water
2 15oz cans diced tomatos (do not drain)
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
8 oz. tomato sauce
3-4 cups frozen tortelinni
1 green pepper diced
1 zucchini diced
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp. parsley

Brown sausage in pan. Remove meat and drain any excess fat. Saute onion and garlic for a few minutes in the same pan you cooked the sausage in. Now, transferring to a large stock pot, add the garlic, onion, meat, broth, water, basil, oregano, tomato sauce, diced tomato's, green pepper, and zucchini and bring to a boil. Then turn the heat down to low and simmer for 25-30 min.  Lastly, add the tortelinni and let simmer for another 15-20 more minutes. Serve with bread for dipping.
