This is a recipe that I always get compliments on especially from the men who eat it. It is a thick and hearty soup that fills you up. A very good choice for a cold winter day.
Fry the hamburger or Italian sausage until brown.
Be sure to break up the larger chunks of meat.
Meatballs can be substituted if desired.
Add chopped onion, green pepper, and shredded cabbage. Cook until meat is browned and vegetables are cooked.
Drain well. Add seasonings, broth, water, tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, dry soup mix, tortellini, and Parmesan cheese.
Cook and simmer until the tortellini burst open. Serve while hot.
