    Cristie B's Note:

    One spoonful of our take on “instant soup,” and you’ll never want to buy the canned or dried kind again. It’s simple; cook tortellini in chicken stock until tender, swirl with a hint of pesto and pile high with Parmesan. It’s ready in 30 minutes or less, but tastes like took-all-day soup.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large Dutch oven or heavy saucepan, bring water and broth to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add sliced green onion and tortellini. Cook until tortellini is tender, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      During the last 2 minutes of cooking, add chicken. Season soup with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Ladle into bowls, then swirl in a dollop of pesto (about 1 teaspoon). Top generously with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
    5. 5
      Tip: For extra kick, substitute 1-2 cups spicy chicken sausage, crumbled and cooked. Or make it vegetarian with 1-2 cups fresh mozzarella balls (known as bocconcini) and 4 cups vegetable broth.
