Tortellini Soup

This is one of my mom's go-to soups as it's really easy to make and delicious.  It's one of my fiance's favorites.  I'll definitely be adding some fresh vegetables to this in the summer.

What a photogenic soup! 
What you'll need:
  • Mild Italian sausage (or spicy if you're into that kind of thing)
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 can water
  • 2 cans Italian diced tomatoes 
  • 1 can green beans (french or regular)
  • Cheese tortellini 
  • Oregano and basil 

Brown the sausage and boil the tortellini ahead of time.  Pour beef broth and water into a large pot.  Add the canned tomatoes and green beans.  You will notice that the beef broth and water make a very small amount of broth.  The key to this recipe is to not drain the canned tomatoes or green beans because the juices make up the rest of the broth.  Add some oregano and basil.  I also added some grated Parmesan cheese because it makes the soup a little creamier. Cook on low to medium heat until the green beans are soft.  Add the sausage and tortellini.
