Fresh Tomato Soup with Tortellini
Ingredients
1
tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil
2
pounds ripe tomatoes (about 6 medium), peeled, seeded, and cut up
1 1/2
cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2
cups water
1
8 ounce can low-sodium tomato sauce
1
tablespoon snipped fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
4
ounces packaged dried tortellini
