Family Recipe Makeover: Tortellini Soup


Tortellini Soup

This recipe has been one we have been eating for years, a family favorite for fall. However, when I decided to start eating healthier, this recipe got put in the back of my recipe file to collect dust. I recently pulled it out and revamped it, so we could enjoy it and be healthier.


  • 1 lb of lean ground turkey sausage
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic depending on preferences
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms sliced
  • 2 zucchini sliced
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 2-3 stalks celery sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 24 oz low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 15 oz stewed tomatoes
  • 1 pkg of tortellini of your choice


  1. Brown sausage in skillet with onion. Combine all ingredients except tortellini. Slow cook on stove for 3-4 hours. Add tortellini and cook another hour or so.

Recipe Notes

Note: I double all ingredients except tortellini because we prefer it that way. Also, I can't eat pasta anymore, so I pulled soup out for me before that stage. I then added quinoa to mine (as pictured).
