Tortellini Soup


This soup is a go to in my family. It is good in summer or winter, it is healthy, and light, and delicious! I looked online to see if it’s already out there and I couldn’t find anything the same.


We served this soup at my wedding!


You can make it ahead and freeze it and then add the tortellinis if you want. You can substitute garden tomatoes for the can of diced tomatoes for even better flavor. Serve it with good bread and oil and balsamic for an easy meal.


This is one that you will definitely want to add to your dinner repertoire! Happy cooking!
