How Pinteresting: Sausage & Tortellini Soup

I love a good soup during this time of year.
They're so comforting during the chilly fall weather.
And are typically pretty easy to make.

Last week, my sister and I tried a new Pinterest recipe.
I've come to learn that Pinterest recipes are usually a hit or miss.
So of course we were skeptical, but this soup was definitely a BIG hit.

I present to you, Sausage and Tortellini Soup.

 We found the recipe on Pinterest, but the recipe was linked here.

Here are the ingredients and directions.
[We kinda changed them a little]

1 lb. mild sausage
1 lb. sweet sausage
1 19oz. bag frozen cheese tortellini
1 can evaporated milk
28 oz. chicken broth
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. parsley
1 tbsp. chives
salt & pepper to taste
parmesan cheese

Cook the sausage in medium size pan. Drain the fat from the sausage, and pat dry of grease.
Put all ingredients except tortellini in medium size sauce pan and bring to boil.  Allow to simmer about 15 minutes.  Add tortellini and allow to boil according to pasta pkg. instructions.  Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve.

It was incredibly simple and super delicious.
When I make this again next time, I might change out 1 lb. of sausage for white beans instead. Maybe even mix in some Italian shredded cheese to make the soup cheesy and delicious. 

Enjoy y'all :)
