Tortellini Vegetable Soup

It’s day 3 of my Soup Week!  So far I’ve shared a Cheddar & Ale Chicken Chowder and Turkey Meatball Noodle Soup…are you hungry for soup yet?!

Soup is such a fantastic meal during these dark and cold nights.  Soup is comfort food at it’s best, especially when you serve up a bowl with warm crusty bread and butter.  So delicious.  I love having soup simmering on the stove at dinner time, because the house smells amazing and feels so cozy.  When I have a pot going I find my family always drifts to the kitchen to find out what’s on the menu.  And when I tell them soup, they’re always excited for dinner!

I’m soup-er excited to share this Tortellini Vegetable Soup recipe with you because it’s definitely a crowd pleaser!  The broth is flavourful, the tortellini delicious and you can add any vegetables that you and your family love!  I love a recipe that can be tailored to your own tastebuds.

I used cheese tortellini for this particular batch of soup, but spinach or mushroom tortellini would be delicious too!  When I make this again I’m definitely going to try spinach tortellini…mmmm…my mouth is watering just thinking of it!  Oh, and did I mention you can have this on the table in less than an hour?  Even better!

    Jo-Anna,
    I love your Christmas Wreaths. How can I print a copy of the photo, especially the Star-Bucks inspired. I would like for my Crafts Group
    to see it. We are in a community of retired persons. We do two Craft Sales each year just open to the community. All proceeds are used to answer Wish List to Santa for needy kids and families. Last year we answered those lists for seven single-parent families with 25 kids. Seven kids residing in Florida Children Home. Also 75 gifts for our local Head Start program. They know of course not to “wish” for a computer or cell phone. We have given bicycles,cameras,soccer balls,basketballs,skateboards,comforter sets as well as dolls and such for the young girls. And always an outfit of clothing including shoes. Thanks. Connie
