Sausage Tortellini Soup

A very thoughtful friend brought this over last night for my family, as I've been a bit under the weather. It was so yummy, I thought I'd share it. I'm excited to have another meal to add to our family-meal-rotaion. The recipe comes from my ward Melinda Thompson. Thank Liv!

2 lbs. ground Italian sausage
2 cloves minced garlic
1 med. chopped onion
6 c. beef broth
6 c. canned pureed tomatoes
3 large carrots, chopped
2 Tbsp. oregano
3 1/2 c. tomato sauce
2 tsp. basil
2 Tbsp. parsley
1 bay leaf
2 (10-oz.) pkgs. tortellini

Brown sausage and drain. Saute onion and garlic in a large pot. Add all ingredients except tortellini. Simmer 2-3 hours. Add tortellini the last 45 minutes of cooking time.
