Tortellini Soup – Version 2

This is a creamy Tortellini Soup that is a meal all by itself. I used frozen Swiss chard that we grew in our garden but you can also use frozen spinach.  This soup is filled with carrots, onions, celery, garlic, Swiss chard, five cheese tortellini and a creamy chicken broth topped off with freshly grated parmesan cheese…..so good!
