Tortellini Soup

September 28, 2011

Last night I made tortellini soup. This soup is a favorite in our house. When football starts, and the weather cools off, we tend to have this soup once a week or so. It’s so yummy!


This recipe is from BeckyMom. It was introduced to me a few years ago during lunch (and football) and I was hooked. Thanks, BeckyMom!

  1. Looks wonderful….when I’m there for lunch today, maybe I can have a bowl….if there’s any left!

    • Sorry, Mom, Aaron took the leftovers to work. And the leftovers aren’t as quite as good as the same night stuff. Guess you’ll have to make it some night!

  2. This is a family favorite for us as well. I make the soup a little different, but tortellini soup is very good! I vowed to myself I would not bake this week Jill. It is killing me, lol.

    • I think anything with tortellini would be excellent! Lol.

      No baking for a week? That would kill me for sure. I’m just thinking about making some mini baked apple donuts. Good luck!!

  3. I agree with Jill – anything with tortellini in it has to be good! It was actually a recipe that was introduced to me by my mom who probably found it in a woman’s magazine. It’s a keeper!!!

    • I wondered where you got the recipe from. Now I know!

  4. I can’t wait to try this! It looks so good and easy to make.

    • It’s all those things, and so yummy!! Hope you like it! 🙂
