Sane Cooking ~ Tortellini Soup

This isn't a recipe really as it is just an idea.

On those days when you are so busy that dinner is not the top of your agenda, here is an idea that is both healthy and EASY!

Tortellini Soup

1 package (or 2 depending on the size of your family) Buitoni Three Cheese Tortellini
6 c chicken broth
carrots diced
scallions diced
grated parmesan cheese

Bring 6 c of chicken broth to a boil.  Add carrots for a few minutes to begin the softening process.  Add the tortellini.  Bring to a simmer.  Cook for about 10 minutes until the tortellini are tender.  Add scallions for last 2-3 minutes.  Serve hot with parmesan cheese for flavor.

You can add anything to this soup.  Some ideas are leftover chicken breast strips, celery, onions, kale, spinach.  The possibilities are ENDLESS!!

  3. I love this, I've done something similar but it's a nice option..especially with some crusty bread and butta'!

  4. What a fantastic idea! I would have never thought of this. I love it because I can make this quickly and it looks like I really put a lot of effort into it :) Thanks Bunches for this one!!!
