Italian Tortellini Soup

I know, I know...lotsa soup going on...but it is finally Fall! This one is good and filled with lots of veggies! I it's kinda like a stew...but more like a soup...Rachel Ray may call it a Stoup. Whatever, I recommend it.
1 lb hamburger**I used ground turkey**
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 small onion, diced
salt and pepper to taste
3 (14.5 ounce) cans of diced tomatoes
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
8 cups of water
8 tsp beef bullion
1 green pepper chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup fresh(or frozen) green beans, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can kidney beans
1 cup zucchini, chopped **I did not use a full cup**
salt and pepper to taste...yes, again.
1 pkg Good Seasons dry Italian Dressing Mix
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1 20 ounce pkg Cheese tortellini**I used frozen**

Brown meat in skillet with the onion, garlic and salt and pepper. Put the canned tomatoes in a blender and blend them until smooth. Put the meat mixture, blended tomatoes and all other ingredients, BUT NOT the tortellini and NOT the tomato soup, into a large soup pot.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer and cook for 20 minutes with the pot partially covered.  IN a separate pot cook the tortellini according to package directions and drain.  Add the tortellini to the soup and stir in the tomato soup, simmer for 5 more minutes. Enjoy~
