Cook’s Note – Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup:
- If you don’t like Italian sausage, then you can leave it out altogether or use chicken instead.
- Where I live in Japan fresh herbs are wicked expensive ($4 for a ¼ ounce of basil!). I started growing my own herbs at home to offset the costs. Whether fresh basil is wicked expensive where you live or if you don’t have any on hand, you can use 2 teaspoons of dried basil in its place. Just add it to the pot when you add in the Italian seasoning.

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup
- 1 pound ground Italian sausage hot, mild, or sweet
- 1 medium yellow onion diced

- Line a large plate with 3 sheets of paper towel, and set it aside.
- In a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, add the Italian sausage and use a wooden spoon to break the meat apart into chunks. Cook until browned and completely cooked thru, about 5-6 minutes. Transfer the sausage to the paper towel-lined plate to drain.
