Tortellini Soup

Updated on December 15, 2017

Tortellini Soup

This the the best tasting soup I have ever eaten. It even tops my Mom's homemade vegetable soup and that's going a stretch.

I've made this soup several times. It's easy or I wouldn't have given it a go but you have to follow the directions exactly in order to get the best flavor.

I'm not one to buy special oils or ingredients for recipes but I do for this one. I buy Virgin Olive Oil to start my onions and garlic.

I'm not good at dicing tomatoes so I buy mine in a can at the supermarket. While you can make your own stock from chicken parts, I just buy a box from the shelf. The only difference I make now is that I buy the low sodium since I have had problems with my kidneys.

I make this soup in a stock pot and there is always enough to put in the freezer for later. Yes, this soup freezes well.


1 large onion

1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1qt. chicken broth
1 cup seasoned, diced tomatoes (with garlic and onion
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. Dried basil
