Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

 1 lb Italian sausage, casings removed
 1 tsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 cup chopped onion
 2 cloves garlic, sliced
 4 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
 1 cup sliced carrot
 5 cups Rachael Ray All-Natural Beef Flavored Stock
 1 cup Colavita Tomato Basil Sauce
 ½ cup water
 ½ cup red wine
 1 tsp dried basil
 ½ tsp dried oregano
 8 oz frozen tortellini (meat or cheese)
 1 cup zucchini, sliced
 1 medium green bell pepper, ½ inch dice
 3 tbsp fresh parsley
 Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
 Parmesan cheese

In a large pot or Dutch oven, brown the sausage. Remove and drain the fat. Add oil; saute the onion and garlic until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes.


Return the sausage to the pot along with the tomatoes, carrots, broth, tomato sauce water, wine, oregano and basil. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 30 minutes.


Remove any fat that comes to the surface of the soup. Add the tortellini, zucchini, green pepper and parsley. Cover and simmer 35 - 40 minutes, or until the tortellini are tender. Taste and adjust seasonings.


Ladle soup into warmed bowls, top with a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese and serve. Pass additional cheese, if desired.
