Minestrone Soup

I've been making this recipe I found off some message board (sorry forgot which one) for years now. Its a total hit every time!!! I think it was originally called Ding Dong Ditch Soup because the person that posted the recipe had just moved into the neighborhood and heard the doorbell ring. Opens the door to find a basket with this soup and some instructions and I believe some bread. Anyways, she went to thank the neighbor and good the recipe! SCORE for us!!!

Minestrone Soup

1 lb Italian sausage
1 cup onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 cup beef broth
½ cup water
½ cup red wine
28 oz diced tomatoes (or 2 cup fresh)
1 cup carrots, thinly sliced
½ tsp basil
½ tsp oregano
8 oz tomato sauce
1 ½ c zucchini, sliced
8 oz frozen tortellini (or 2 cup macaroni or 8 oz frozen ravioli)
1 bell pepper, chopped
fresh parsley

Brown sausage, onion and garlic. Drain. Add broth, water, wine, tomatoes, carrots, basil, oregano and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered 30 minutes. Skim fat and add remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer 35-40 minutes. Serve with grated Romano cheese and fresh bread.
