    under12parsecs's Note:

    It is turning cold here in AK fast, so in desperate need of a warming, filling dinner in a hurry, I threw this hearty soup together with ingredients I had on hand. DH absolutely loved it and requested that it become a regular part of our winter soup rotation :)

      This is a very flavorful soup that makes a lot! I was able to find the specified tortellini, which was great. I was a little hesitant about the cinnamon, but it was fine. All the wonderful spices and flavors in this soup add up to a hearty and tasty meal! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
