Beef or Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

This guest post is brought to you by my mom who told me not to tell you that she submitted this recipe but I am ’cause that’s how I roll.  Here’s my Mom’s Tortellini Soup!


  • 3/4 lb cooked hamburger or Italian sausage crumbled
  • 1 can Italian recipe stewed tomatoes (ie..Del Monte)
  • 1 can (14 oz) beef broth
  • 1 package tortellini, cooked al dente
  • 1 can Italian green beans
  • 2 green onions, sliced


Combine hamburger, tomatoes, broth and 1 3/4 cups water; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low; stir in tortellini, green beans and onions.  Gently cook until heated through.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with grated Parmesan Cheese if desired.

Makes 4 servings (about 2 1/2 cups each)

TIP: If you don’t have Italian stewed tomatoes…I use regular stewed or just diced tomatoes in a can and add some Italian seasoning.

    I like this – I’d probably substitute the green beans because my husband and kids won’t eat it though, but I think they’d love the rest of it.

    Oh my goodness! My kids and I made this soup. It was so YUMMY! I have never seen my family rave over soup before. This is a recipe we are putting in our book.
    Tell your mom thanks for sharing it.

    Yeah, is there a good substitute for the green beans? I hate them, especially from the can!!

    Hey Jenny,
    I make my italian soup with garbanzo beans instead of green beans, I also add two zucchini sliced and my family loves it.

    I make mine without the green beans also and add chopped zucchini and carrots as well as about 1/2 a jar of spaghetti sauce.
