It's getting to be that time of year again...ok, it's not. It's Tennessee, and it's still hot, but there is the hint of fall in the air. And so I'm beginning to itch for my fall comfort food recipes! This is one that I adapted from Southern Living.
Tortellini Minestrone Soup
1 medium onion, chopped1 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup white wine
2 large cans diced tomatoes
1 pkg frozen green beans
1 pound Italian sausage (I use chicken sausage)
italian seasoning, basil, etc to taste
1 pkg cheese tortellini
brown sausage in a large stockpot.
add olive oil and saute onion in hot oil in a over medium heat 8 min or until onion is tender. add garlic and spices, cook 1 minute.add the wine and cook for about 5 minutes
follow by chicken stock
bring mixture to a boil
then add the green beans and simmer for about 15 minutes
finally, add the tortellini and cook for 10-12 minutes depending on package directions.
top with parmesan cheese if you so desire. enjoy
this is great with tiramisu for dessert!
