Tortellini Soup

1lb. Pork sausage
1-2 TBS Olive Oil
4 carrots (sliced)
2 celery stalks (sliced)
8 mushrooms(sliced)
1/2 large onion (diced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
salt and pepper
48 oz box Swanson broth
1 can Swanson broth
1/2 bag of Cheese Tortellini
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup water
Cook the sausage until no longer pink. Drain and place on a paper towel.
In a medium to large stock pot saute the carrots, celery and onions for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic in for about 1 minute.
Add the Broth, oregano, basil, salt and pepper, diced tomatoes and water. Let this simmer on low for about 20-25 minutes. Add in the tortellini and let them cook for about 5 minutes.
The Results:
This was a delicious quick soup. Soup is always good because you can throw anything you want into the pot. I don't think you can really go wrong. I topped the soup off with some Parmesan cheese and some crusty bread. It was tasty and filling.
