One thought on “Tortellini Soup

  1. I made this last night- so yummy! Changed it a little bit though:

    1, 28 oz can no-salt diced tomatoes (instead of 14 oz italian)
    1, 900ml container no-salt added chicken stock (instead of 2 cups of veggie)
    1 cup Healthy Choice spaghetti sauce
    1 small zucchini, diced
    1/2 large onion (1 small would work), minced
    4 garlic cloves (instead of 1)
    1 tsp italian seasoning
    1 tsp basil
    TONS of pepper
    pinch of chilli flakes
    1 bayleaf
    spinkle of parm cheese and parsley after serving
    Made TONS- we’ll have soup for probably 3 dinners! And I served it with homemade garlic cheese toast to dip in…YUM!
