    I made this for my boyfriend and myself. He’s battling cancer and his appetite isn’t great. He loved this soup! I used Pomi chopped tomatoes and made my own sauce. Topped it with freshly grated Parmesan. So good thank you!

      Yes you can! The tortellini May absorb some of the soup, so you may want to leave them out until you’re ready to reheat and enjoy it :)

    Do you recommend leaving the brown bits from the sausage to help flavor the soup or do you want it cleaned completely before adding the butter and flour?
