1 pound sausage, removed from its casing
1 medium onion, finely diced
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons of dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1 can of crushed tomatoes
4 cups of beef broth
8 oz cooked tortellini pasta
1/4 cup half and half cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley for garnish
In a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat, sauté the sausage and onion until the sausage is no longer pink. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant.
Reduce heat to medium and add basil, oregano and tomato paste. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the crushed tomatoes and beef stock.
Simmer the soup over medium heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add cooked tortellini and half and half cream, stirring until combined. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste and serve hot with grated parmesan and parsley on top. Enjoy!
