Take your tomato soup to a whole new level by adding Italian sausage and cheesy 3 cheese tortellini! This recipe is an easy one to make and it only messes up one pot. I love a meal that is an easy clean up. I used a mild sausage but if you like it spicier use a spicier sausage, add red pepper flakes or some dashes of cayenne pepper.
At first I thought there weren't enough tortellini but once they puffed up after cooking the balance was better. I would still almost use another 1/2 bag of them! As the garden is coming into season, again, squash from the garden would be a nice addition to this soup.

Lazy...and no desire or time for washing more than one pan when we are done with the meal. That's a good way to describe me lately. I threw what we liked together in a pot and this is what I came up with.
I can see several substitutions and additions to this dish that would be just as wonderful. Some ideas I had were to substitute chicken broth for the water and using some chopped veggies (like squashes) from the garden.
