{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} SPICY SAUSAGE AND TORTELLINI SOUP





2 tsp olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped

2 cups butternut squash, cubed

1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes with juice

4 cups vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup water

2 pieces Parmesan rind

1-1/2 cups sliced spicy Italian sausage {I used the presliced Johnsonville version}

1-1/2 cups uncooked dry tortellini pasta

salt and pepper to taste



1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until the begin to soften. Add garlic and thyme and sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes.

2. Add butternut squash, tomatoes, broth, water and Parmesan rind. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 -20 minutes or until the squash is fork tender. Add sausage and pasta and cook for an additional 8 minutes.


If you want to make this ahead of time, follow all the steps but don't add the pasta. Reheat the soup and add the pasta 8 minutes before serving.


As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
