Peel and dice the carrots and onions. Mince the garlic.
Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise and then slice those halves in half. Slice into 1/2 inch triangles. Slice the sausage links into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices.
Preheat the large pot on Medium heat. Add 1-2 teaspoons of Olive Oil to the pot and then the sliced zucchini in a single layer. Cook on the first side for 3-4 minutes to brown. Stir to flip the pieces over and sear the other side for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
To the same pot, add another 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil and then the sausage slices in a single layer. Sear the sausage on the first side for 5-6 minutes. Stir to flip the pieces over and sear the other side for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to the same plate with the zucchini.
Add another tsp of olive oil to the pot and add the carrots, onions, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the butter, olive oil, and flour. Stir so all flour is moistened and combined with the veggies. Whisk in the milk.
Stir in the broth and then bring soup up to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until the carrots are tender. Add back the sausage and the zucchini, plus the frozen tortellini. Stir, then cover and bring to a simmer, then cook for a final 10 minutes until the tortellini are warmed through. Enjoy!
