Tomato Tortellini Soup

My friend Janelle gave me this recipe.  We’ve tweaked it a little and it has become a family favorite.
Frozen cheese tortellini makes this soup come together quickly.  It only has to cook in boiling water for about 2 minutes.
It is rainy and cold here today.  I’m not sure where our nice weather has gone.  This comforting soup made the perfect dinner.
My husband and teenage boys don’t think soup is really a meal, so I add chicken to make it a bit more hearty.  This is one they request.
I hope you like it too!

When I tasted this soup, I knew I wanted the recipe. Sarah was happy to share it along with the story of how it came into being. Sarah’s son Dan wanted to have a soup shack as opposed to a lemonade stand in the middle of the summer. Sarah said, “Each time the topic surfaced again we discussed it further and slowly developed a plan for him. There was plenty of opportunity to talk about many aspects of having a business as well as his ultimate purpose for doing so (which he is still trying to figure out as are we). The plan included a manageable effort in that he would make soup on the first Saturday of each month for four months and sell by pre-orders. We picked the best four months of the year, September through December. We decided on a small variety of soups and then came up with what we hoped would be catchy names for them.”  Thank you so much Sarah and Dan for sharing with us!
