Tortellini Stew

Repost, because I'm making this tonight. 
It's a great recipe! 

Tortellini Stew

Group 1 Ingredients:

1 pound Italian Sausage sliced (I cook this in oven then slice)
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced

Group 2 Ingredients:

5 cups beef broth (or chicken)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup cooking wine (I use red wine)
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
(OR a can of your favorite stewed tomatoes)
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
8 oz. can tomato sauce

Group 3 Ingredients
8 oz. tortellini (your choice)
3 T fresh parsley, chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 or 2 medium zucchini, coarsely chopped.

1. Brown Group 1 ingredients until onions are translucent.
2. Add Group 2 ingredients to onion/sausage/garlic mixture.
3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. I usually add the zucchini and green pepper at this point.
4. Add group 3 ingredients to stew, simmer until tortellini is done.
5. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and bread.

Don't try to stick your camera into the pot for a closeup.
