- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced

- In a large heavy-bottomed soup pot, brown the beef over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add oregano and tomato paste and stir to evenly distribute tomato paste.
- Add tomato sauce, tomatoes, broth and water. Stir, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer about 20 minutes.

- Scoop into bowls and serve with a dollop of ricotta and a sprinkle of mozzarella.
- The amount of salt in this recipe can vary greatly depending on the type of tomatoes and broth used. I suggest tasting it before adding the tortellini and adding salt if needed.
- Use ground chicken or turkey in place of ground beef, if you want. Or leave out the meat entirely for a vegetarian option.
