Tomato soup, tortellini, and chicken sausage bring the flavors of chicken parmesan to a comforting soup.
In a heavy-bottom pan over medium heat, saute chicken sausage until cooked throughout, breaking into crumbles as it cooks. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
To the pan, add the diced carrots, onion, and red pepper. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add in chicken broth and tomatoes, scraping the bottom of the pan to release the brown bits from the sausage. Add thyme, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes until veggies are tender.
Meanwhile, cook tortellini according to package directions. Set aside.
Transfer tomato mixture to a blender and puree until smooth, or until desired consistency. Add sugar, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper to taste. Blend to combine. Pour back into the saucepan. If a thinner consistency is desired, add more chicken broth.
Stir in sausage and tortellini and heat through. Ladle into bowls and garnish with parmesan shavings and basil.
