Tortellini Sausage Soup

Source: Unknown

3 links Italian sausage
4 cloves pressed garlic
1 onion, diced
1/2 c water
2 cans chicken broth
1/2 c apple cider (don't leave out)
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 c sliced carrots
1 tsp dried basil
2 medium zucchini, grated (I left this out)
8-10 oz pkg cheese tortellini (I used a 20 oz bag)
2 Tbsp dried parsley (yes 2 TBSP)

Remove the casings from sausage and crumble into large soup pot.

Begin cooking sausage over medium heat, stirring frequently (may need to drain halfway through). Meanwhile, chop onions and garlic and add to the sausage. Continue cooking until onions are translucent and sausage is cooked.

Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, cider, water, broth, carrots, oregano and basil. Cover and simmer for 30 min. Add parsley and zucchini and simmer for another 15 min. or so.

Add the tortellini and cook until tender. Serve with bread and freshly-grated Parmesan.
