An ultra creamy tortellini soup with sausage and bell pepper. A comforting soup you can make time and time again. Loaded with Italian sausage, cheese tortellini and tender sautéed bell pepper, all tossed with an Italian seasoning and swimming in a rich tomatoey broth. Jazzed up with Parmesan and a touch of heavy cream for good measure. It’s a 30 minute meal of your dreams, you won’t believe how flavorful this pot of soup is until you try it. Be sure to serve this with a side of garlic bread for a mouthwatering result. —Anna Chwistek | Serving Dumplings
