Tortellini & Vegetable Soup - The Ultimate Comfort Food

Comfort Food. Just those two words evoke warm and cozy feelings in just about everyone. But we need it to be fast and easy to prepare and nutritious and delicious.

Soup is a the king of comfort foods, I think. This recipe for Tortellini and Vegetable Soup is all of those things.  So cook up a batch of this delicious, tummy-warming soup on any chilly day.  You'll be feeling all cozy and warm and you'll be a healthier person as well.  What could be better than that?

Tortellini and Vegetable Soup Recipe

A simple but delicious soup you'll make again and again.

8 cups Chicken Broth

1 cup peas, cooked 1-2 minutes

1 cup carrots, cut into julienne strips 1 inch long and cooked 2-3 minutes or just until crisp tender

1 cup mushrooms cleaned and sliced

2/3 pound tortellini, cooked el dente

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

In a medium stockpot, bring chicken broth just to boiling. Add peas, carrots, mushrooms and pasta. Ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

NOTE: I don't recommend preparing this too far in advance because the pasta will absorb more of the broth and become a bit mushy. It's just perfect prepared right before you eat it.

This soup recipe could not be easier. It's perfectly delicious exactly as written, although you could jazz it up a bit if you like.

I used cheese filled tortellini but you could use any kind you like. You could use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. You could add bits of cooked chicken. Just use your imagination.
