Just An FYI…

There are a couple things to consider when making this tortellini soup.

  • You can use fresh not frozen if you prefer they will just cook faster.
  • If you like a thinner broth add more chicken stock.
  • You can use any kind of stock you’d like- chicken, vegetable or beef.
  • Start with sautéed garlic and onion for even more flavor.
  • Add any vegetables you’d like. Spinach and peas work very well here.
