Tortelini Soup

This isn't actually a "new" recipe for our family, but it is a well-loved one. I was going to grill something for dinner, but with all the clouds and rain, it just seemed more of a soup day. And this sounded good and good it was! We love it served with scones, but I was too lazy to make them tonight, so we just had garlic bread from the grocery store.1 pkg. three cheese tortelini
1 1/2 pkg. Jimmy Dean Sausage - sage flavor
1 medium onion, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped and quartered
4 carrots, chopped
5 1/2 cups water
5 tsp. chicken bouillon paste or 5 cubes
1 tsp. basil
1 bay leaf
1 big can crushed tomatoes, undrained
2 small cans diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste

Brown the sausage and saute the onion. Pour all ingredients (except the tortelini) in a pan. Add sausage and onion. Put the tortelini in about 10 minutes before serving. Make sure the soup mixture had come to a boil, then put the tortelini in and turn the soup down.
