This dish is wonderful for when you want to 1) warm the crew and 2) not have to work real hard. 


1 lb bulk sweet Italian sausage (if you can only find links remove the casings)

1 small onion, chopped

2-4 big cloves garlic minced (remember you have a garlic press aboard!)

1 32-48 oz. box or can of beef broth

28 oz canned diced tomatoes

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 can green beans, drained

2 carrots sliced

½ Cup red wine

2 tablespoons each oregano and basil

½ Cup dried cheese filled tortellini or 8-10 oz. fresh


In your deep soup/sauce pan cook the sausage, crumbling as it cooks, when almost cooked through add the onion, garlic and wine.  When sausage is cooked add all remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, and simmer until pasta is tender.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve with fresh baked bread if you’ve made it or a nice crusty loaf you’ve brought.
