What a simple, hearty and delicious soup this turned out to be. We love tortellini but I have never made soup with it. Usually I turn it into an Alfredo dish, but not this time! People get so focused on eating the same things over and over again that it’s nice when we fix something different like this Tortellini Soup! It was like two meals in one. First, the delicious five cheese tortellini followed by a delicious chicken based broth. This recipe makes enough for an entire family!
