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
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.
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).
