Tortellini Soup

My husband made this soup one night. He is my inspiration for cooking! How did I get so lucky to find a man who loves to cook...and is good at it? This soup is fantastically easy. It is a go-to for me when I've had a busy day and forgot to plan something. We eat it a lot.

Sorry for the lack of pictures. It's been one of those weeks!
Tortellini Soup
This will feed 2 adults and 2-3 children

1 Bag of frozen tortellini. Ravioli also works, but then it is called ravioli soup.
1 Large (Family Size) can of tomato soup
Garlic Salt
Black pepper
Salad Seasoning
Parmesan Cheese
  1. Boil water for the tortellini.
  2. Pour the pasta in the boiling water and cook until the tortellini float to the top.
  3. Drain & set to the side
  4. Pour soup into the empty pasta pot. Remember for every can of soup you use, add a can of water also.
  5. Season with garlic salt, black pepper and salad seasoning to your taste.
  6. Once the soup starts to boil on the sides of the pot add pasta back into soup.
  7. Continue cooking until everything is warm.
  8. We like to stir in a lot of Parmesan cheese but you can just sprinkle it on top if you like less.

Do you have a picky eater? I have two. To get them to try tomato soup I poured it in an orange cup, cooled it down and stuck a straw in it. I was able to fool our daughter, but our son is a little tougher. She tried the soup and loved it, enough that she tried a tortellini and likes those as well. It is amazing what happens when you just try!

Sides to go with this: Bag of salad and garlic bread.

Do you remember this post? Check back next week to see how my problem solved. Hint: I used the idea one of our readers left in the comments!

There's one very important word in here that makes me know I have to try it. "Easy"! Sound good too :)
