I have had requests for this recipe for a while so here it is!
Easy Chicken Tortellini Soup
1Qt Chicken Broth
2-3 Chicken Breasts, cooked and diced or shredded
2 Carrots, diced
2 Stalks Celery, diced
1 meduim onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T butter
1 can diced tomatoes, italian style
1 container tortellini, dried or fresh (the fresh stuff you can find in the refrigerated section of the market.)
Various Spices (oregano, garlic salt, pepper)
In a large saucepan or Dutch Oven, melt the butter and sauté the onion, garlic, carrots and celery until fragrant. Add chicken broth, tomatoes and tortellini (if you are using the dried kind.) Cook until the pasta is soft. Add the chicken and heat through. Add spices to taste and serve hot. (If you are using fresh tortellini, add it when you add the chicken as the fresh kind does not have to cook as long as the dried kind.)
So, tomorrow is the big day for us!! The movers are here right now, packing up our house and by tomorrow night we will be in Kansas City. We plan to stop in Denver and Vegas before rolling into Pasadena.
