These are some of the reviews from people who tried the Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini Recipe :
Divine! Sublime!! LOVED this soup!!! No changes needed though perhaps a suggestion? Use 6 cups of beef broth versus 5 and add only as much tortellini as you plan on eating at each serving. The soup literally sopes up the broth, so if you have leftovers (which are even BETTER the next day) you have no broth as the tortellini has absorbed it! Thanks – my hat’s off to you!!!!
I just made this soup and it is one of the BEST soups I think I have ever made. You have to try it.
