Mark Keeler's Italian Sausage and Tortellini Soup

5 links hot turkey Italian sausages, casings removed
1 can condensed French onion soup (10.5 ounce)
1 can diced Italian tomatoes (14.5 ounce)
2 cups chicken broth (low sodium)
2 teaspoons Italian seasonings
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 package fresh three-cheese tortellini (9-ounce package)
Fresh grated parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)

Cut up meat, then brown in a 4-quart Dutch oven. Drain fat. Add all remaining ingredients, except cheese. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon into bowls & sprinkle with parmesan cheese

I added arugula, garlic and white beans plus a few secrets!
