Tortellini Soup

In Dianes Kitchen


What a simple, hearty and delicious soup this turned out to be. We love tortellini but I have never made soup with it before now. Usually I turn it into an Alfredo dish, but not this time! This recipe makes enough for an entire family!




In a large stock pot, melt the butter and

add the onion, celery, carrots and garlic.

Cook for 10 minutes over a medium

heat, with a lid, stirring occasionally.


Add the chicken broth and water.

Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Turn to a simmer and cook for

15 minutes with the lid on.


Add the herbs and tortellini then

cook according to the package

directions for the tortellini.

My tortellini said to boil for

four minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan

cheese on top and serve.
